Ok I know we are deep in pitching with the surplus pitching we got, that being said adding a quality starting pitcher and signing him to a 4-5 year deal would give us many options such as trading some of our pitching for a impact bat, would rather dangle monteto + jenry M. out there than THOR or wheeler tho.
Out of these 4 pitchers we have been most closely linked to Arroyo, imo it would be a smart move seeing how there a guy named Ubaldo Jimenez who will be asking around any where from 12-14 mil per year, while garza and santana will be looking for about 15-18 mil per year, and arryyo is looking for a 3 year deal 13-14 mil per year. Its a no brainer for me, ubaldo is the best option, close to the cheapest out of the 4, and is the best pitcher of the 4.
After the second half last year ubaldo compiled a 1.82 ERA with 100 strikeouts in 84 innings. In six September starts, he was 4-0 with a 1.09 ERA and a strikeout rate of 11.1 per nine innings. Arroyo might be an inning eater but so is jimenez.
If sandy signs aorryo to a 2-3 year deal at 11-13 mil per year I'm going to be pist.
