"I am not trying to be rude to the Tiger poster who was over here expressing his opinion, but their system is not deep"
I take no offense at all. I know we don't have a deep system which is why I had the thought of adding a current ML player in Porcello and then we would have to take the risk on our farm guys (personally I think Smyly can be a strong 4 or 5 with few problems). Crosby has a lot of upside too but the tommy john surgery worries me a little, has better stuff than Oliver though.
Would you pull the trigger on the deal if we offered more quality over quantity? Something likeTurner, Porcello, & Adam Wilk/Daniel Fields?
Wilk had a tough spring but has shown the ability to start and pitch in relief & Fields is a power/speed combo CF that could replace Soriano in a few years. He needs to hit for contact more consistently though.
I think the cat needs to switch over to Metallica's "Whiskey in the Jaro"
So Sayeth the God of WAR!
We should be trying to extend Garza now not trying to trade our best pitcher who also is young and part of our future. Why would we trade our best pitcher? He is not overpaid. He is young. He has proven himself in the majors. It would be nothing more than just making a trade to make a trade. No one is going to give us a better pitcher than he is.
If we cannot extend him by August then there will be a number of teams looking for a good pitcher and his value would skyrocket. That is if he is pitching well.
