Let's give him a start or two and see what we have. We might have just stuck our hand in a pile of poop and pulled out a pony.

Or at best it might be a mixed bag. Regardless he's proven to be useful from a depth standpoint. God willing it gives him a new lease in his MLB career and we get some decent starts.

The real Freddy Garcia was exposed today. Let's hope Jurrjens is better. Our on going list of starters has been eye opening about our pitching depth. Although these starters have had small sample sizes, Stinson sucked, Arrieta sucked, Garcia sucked, Britton sucked, and Johnson sucked. Let's hope we can get some kind of consistency out of these guys. A free agent starter would have looked very good right about now...

By the way, what is honestly the purpose of claiming Josh Stinson? A 37th round pick, with no major league experience, who owns a 1.468 WHIP, & a 1.62 SO/BB career mark in the minors? I understand claiming a guy like Alex Burnett, who has a decent arm, with a relative amount of success in the big leagues, and is likely the 1st reliever to get called up via injury/underperformance. But, Stinson can't have much potential. A switch to the bullpen wouldn't be a bad idea. Norfolk has Zach Britton, Steve Johnson, Jake Arrieta, Jacob Pettit, Zach Clark, Freddy Garcia, etc to take up starts in AAA.

The Rockies signed Oswalt to a minor league deal a couple of weeks back, that should have been the move we made. I believe Oswalt was the best FA out there...... time will tell.

I doubt that Oswalt would have been interested at that point. He wouldn't have had any clear path to the majors, then.

Why not start Jurrjens? We've started just about everyone else.

He proved to be serviceable, as long as we score 6 early runs we can survive with him in the rotation.......
