    I honestly don't care who they get to pitch this year. 2014 I care about so if it's one year or it doesn't hurt our flexibility then I'm fine with it.

    I think if we got him in chicago he would be dominant...granted he is a shell of himself but I think he has shown some flashes. I think he will be a far better option than what we have been running out of the 5th spot the past few seasons.

    It ain't youth, so I'll guess it's that he's yet to field expectations and fail (mostly because nobody expects anything of Carlos Villanueva, rightfully so).

    I guess the positive here is he hasn't lost anything stuff-wise since 2010. He has legitimate upside, don't think anyone can deny that, but I think he's probably done as an effective starter. Whether it's mechanics or mental, he needs to fix a lot. I can't complain if it's a one year deal though.

    To be fair, I don't think any of us would be discussing Villanueva if he hadn't been mentioned earlier in the off-season by ABTY7, and again more recently.

    I also don't see it as much as love for Carlos as it is we just so happen to be connected to the guy.
