How many years are you signing these pitchers to get them for that price?
Save the kittens, ignore sbs' posts
Red Sox hater since 10/2011
It is anyway, not anyways.
I don't know what is going on.
Several scouts told me that anything north of 12M for posting on Ryu was 'absolutely ridiculous'... One went as far to say: 'that 25.7M is already a sunk cost... adding even a nickel to his actual contract is completely asinine'
Another note: One source said that Villanueva, Liriano and McCarthy are all likely to sign with the team- none are 100% or even 80 but at this stage all seem to be leaning towards accepting Cubs offers...
I'd be cool with that.
I'd be cool with McCarthy, meh with Villanueva and Liriano.
Appreciate the info, ABTY.
I'm hoping for Marcum, myself. I guess he shares a lot of similarities with McCarthy and Villanueva. If the rotation gets covered with FA's, hopefully they have an interesting trade up their sleeves for a CF or 3B.

Again I say: ABTY is our localized version of Peter Gammons in his prime or Ken Rosenthal. Keep the updates coming, as I always look forward to reading them.

With all three of McCarthy, Liriano and Villanueva, you could *almost* be pretty sure you'd have two rotation spots filled for the whole year.
If everyone stayed healthy, which is a HUGE "if," Garza-Shark-McCarthy-Villanueva-Liriano, with Wood in the mix, could be a playoff rotation. The offense is a whole different story unfortunately.
