Tabata
McDonald
Kingham or Holmes
Locke, Wilson, or Owens or McGehee and Hanson

need to slowly reshape rotation for when the fantastic four (cole, j-mo, appel, heredia) come up in 2-3 years. all of them. i despise Karstens with every ounce of my body but i am absolutely okay with him in the 3-4 slot in the meantime, Lincoln could be number 5 until Cole arrives next June at the latest. Correia sucks waste of 4m per year.

Home – 1180 AB .302/.385/.589
Away – 1210 AB .251/.328/.417

– He’s an average OF away from Chase.

– He’s not being paid league minimum, he’s being paid an average of $12M a year over the next 3 years.

We’re not going to break the bank for this guy.

I may be missing a few guys who have serious stuff – but these guys stay in the system IMO and we add to them with starting with Appel.
If you want to trade, I think guys like Jeff Clement, Hauge, D’Arnaud, are guys you can afford to move – along with marginal to good arms like Morris, Locke, Wood.
What do you get back for them… I’m not sure, but I don’t give up the big guns who toss it 95-100mph… sorry NO WAY!!!

Diamondbacks : lincoln headley hanson
Padres : taillon
