My comment would be…if as a free agent, he could make anywhere between 7-8 mil over an entire season, then why not pay him the 3-4 for the presumed half season he’ll actually play?

The dynamic of this pitching staff will be very interesting over the next year plus from the minor league arms. Aside from the coming year, I think that will really determine whether NH will have any staying power in the organization.

But I don’t think he breathed new life into his career by coming here.

Maybe they are feeling burned by that. If you are a righty and dont throw haed they dont want you. He’ll go to te Cards and win 14 games this year. So far i give this ofseason a D.

Taking a chance on someone like Marcum, who was injured last year but threw about 200 innings in the previous two years, with some of the Karstens money would make me ok with this.

If the pirates go in with Locke and Mcpherson as the 4 and 5 starters, i am not ok with this.

i think the model most people envision now is something like…
Burnett
Wandy
FA
JMac
Locke/Mcpherson

and i would be ok with that. the loser of the Locke/Mcpherson take the Karstens role in long relief and hopefully nearly replicate Karstens’s production for 1/8 the money…

Best management team in baseball.
