    Not sure about this one. Reminds me of the Kevin Brown deal.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    Kluber deal with Yankees is expected to be for 10M plus according to Heyman.

    Kluber deal is indeed in $10M to $11M range with Yankees. Pending physical

    Heyman

    Doesn't mention years.

    They must have a lot of faith in his ability to bounce back. Thats a lot of money even on a 1 year deal(if that's what it is) for a guy who's pitched a handful of times in the last two seasons.

    Yep. Reason for concern, as I mentioned earlier. Regardless of money, more concerned with health.

    1 year 11 million. Not sure if any incentives make it that high or if there are any incentives in this at all.

    I think they probably feel more confident than most teams would be and have alot of inside info from Cressey. I'm sure that they are counting on Cressey to keep him healthy and Blake to get him close to the form he was in when they worked together in Cleveland... With those 2guys on our staff that know Kluber the best, if he's going to bounce back were probably his best chance.. they said from his workout that he looked 100% healthy and his velo at 89-91 is right in line with where it should be a month out from ST

    Of all the FA pitchers Kluber probably had the highest ceiling of anyone other than Bauer. He's a command/control/ change speeds/ movement guy and they tend to age much better than power pitchers.

    Its a risky as hell move to count so heavily on 2 guys in Kluber and Sevy that haven't pitched in 2 yrs and German hasn't pitched in a yr but if they all can return to somewhat similar numbers to what they all did last time they were healthy we could have quite the rotation.

    Now you gotta wonder if they are done, if they are still trying to get Brantley and likely move Frazier for pitching ? what about the BP? I absolutely think they need to get a power RHed BP arm

    ^^ You answered my question and some of my concerns. Let's hope.

    For some reason i didn't realize Kluber was going to be 35 by the time the season starts. I actually thought he was 32 or 33. Hopefully he'll turn into our version of Curt Schilling or Justin Verlander, as far as performance goes.

    Meh. 1 year deal for 11 mil. If he's solid, he replaces Tank. If he's back to himself, it's a steal. If he stinks, it's a one year deal

    This is Kevin Brown 2004/2005 but worse.

    Kluber should be the 3rd or 4th slot.

    We need a true #2 not Cashman rolling the damn dice again with dumpster dives.

    I wonder how Sauron feels about this.
