DateQuestionAnswer
2010-01-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Yeah, but: 1. They don't need to replace LeBlanc or Stauffer. They'll need every starter they can get just to get by, with Chris Young's durability issues, Latos' health, Correia's career inning spike last year.... 2. Jerry Hairston is worth bupkis to a contender in July. A starting pitcher with a half season of Petcoized numbers on his bubblegum card would be worth more.
(Jed Hoyer from Actually, RAINY San Diego)
They have six starters right now, and Aaron Poreda makes seven, though I know some people are leery of his ability to be ready for 2010. The offseason also isn't over, and the budget isn't entirely spent.

Also, the league is pretty well aware of Petco. Do the Pads really pull in all that much from dealing their non-Peavy pitchers? (Marc Normandin)
2009-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)For overall career value, this point on, who would you rather have Edinson Volquez or a pitching prospect ranked around 80th on Goldstein's top 100 list next year? Neither will likely pitch next year, both have some risk of development, both have some upside. I guess the question boils down to how much you believe that Edinson can regain his status from the injury. I am in a strat league, I could either keep Volquez or cut him and draft someone in the 80th range on Goldstein's next list.
(LindInMoskva from DC)
Volquez will miss 2010, but most pitchers come back from TJ to previous level. That's a major league pitcher with some upside. He'll be 28. Looking back to Goldstein's 2008 list (not 2009), guys at that level are Deolis Guerra, Radhames Liz, Max Scherzer, Jair Jurrjens, Aaron Poreda, and Greg Reynolds. Even with a year of development, we're looking at two guys who have established themselves at the MLB level, plus Poreda who's an upside guy. I'd probably take Poreda and Jurrjens over Volquez right now, Scherzer's a toss up, but then you have to figure out the "bust risk." Which of those guys would I have picked LAST year and am I confident that I can pick correctly? Kevin's an expert and had Poreda under Liz ... I think that bust risk is huge, so I'd almost always go with the guy I know can pitch. (Will Carroll)
