    Marcum is a veteran here to eat innings and give the team a chance to at least be in the game.

    But his primary job is to keep the mound warm until Wheeler is ready - and then to log innings if/when Santana is traded.

    Again, a 1 year deal for now is perfect.

    Marcum can very well have more value than Santana when the trade deadline approaches.

    Certainly possible. Though I think if Marcum pitches well, they'll try to retain him for the future.

    And insanely boring to watch, he rivals Trachsel in that regard.

    That too. Baseball is a game for entertainment, and I'd rather watch an interesting guy put up a 4 ERA than a boring guy put up a 4 ERA.

    Whats with everyone ******** on Trachsel?

    In his defense as slow and boring as he was he was certainly more productive than his complete opposite in Glendon Rusch..

    Great move, takes less pressure off Niese; Gee, and Harvey, and they can learn from those two vets in Santana and Marcum. Plus, we can always flip him at the deadline.

    I'm shocked he got $4 million as a base salary from the cheapo Mets.
    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    We should be so lucky to have Trachsel as our #5 starter. A guy that would give us 33 starts, over 200 innings and double digits in wins, what a bum.

    Unfortunately, it seems like Young and Marcum are very similar pitchers. A mid-80's fastball is never going to be super fun to watch.

    Definitely like the signing assuming he is healthy. Very effective, and can definitely be a #3-type when he is healthy.
