I would love to sign some pitchers like Jair Jurrjens and John Lannan and see what Rick Peterson could do with them. Assuming he stays.

Yes, but I'd rather wait until they become free agents before I start to advocate adding them to the team.

Aren't you just AMAZED at the huge number of SPs that will be on the market this winter?

Peterson certainly makes lots of the pitchers on that list look like attractive targets.

George Bamberger used to do that, too. He made Mike Cuellar into a Cy Young winner from a journeyman. He turned Pat Dobson into a 20 game winner. Same thing with Ross Grimsley and Mike Torrez. It was like he was the "Pitcher Whisperer".

I would make Teagarden an offer. Looking at the available Cs this winter we're not going to find better OR cheaper.

I'd make a minor league offer to Pearce with a BIG signing bonus. That gives him about the same as ML minimum and we save a roster spot. Pass on the rest.
