While I love our lineup, this Tanaka story puts our pitching staff in a bind.
Obviously, I realize we are not done at this point but the solutions are not apparent.
The trio of Garza, Santana, Ubaldo doesn't really excite anyone, especially for the reported prices.
Lee and Hamels? Who knows how true this is.
In my opinion, if you are not going for a true # 1 or 2 pitcher, then why bother throwing a long term deal out there?
Secondly, our bullpen is not strong. I think it's important to add one more old vet late inning guy. I like Rodney but just realized he really only had one good year.
