    Awww somebody didn't like their absurd suggestions being called out!

    We all want better pitchers, let's start with developing them better rather than targeting questionable short-term (much less longterm) options under questionable premises.

    Especially considering our minor league pitcher of the year has a ceiling of a #5 starter.

    I don't shell out a ton of money and the prospects it will likely require in the real world (not this fantasy world the thread has devolved into) to get a guy who has a trending velocity chart like this one and a career ERA a run higher away from his pitcher's paradise at home. I'm all for talking about realistic options (Span for Shields is realistic with some tweaking) but the couple of posts these last few pages are just obnoxious.
