As I posted in another thread ,wonder what the terms of the deal are ? But this seems to be a good pick up. The guy has a good career ERA of 3.75.
Plus, if we get to July and are out of the race ( which seems likely ) then Marcum will make another nice trade chip for Sandy to flip - assume Marcum has a good 1st half.
This helps out a lot I think, and this move, in my view, is further reason why I don't get overly animated about a lack of moves until after the off-season is actually over.
And if rumors are true regarding Bourn, then that will be even further reason... But I don't want to lose a draft pick signing him.
