That's when I stop being interested. What a monumental waste of resources. Moves like signing guys like Lohse nickel-and-dime this franchise into inconsequentiality.
Gotta agree on this one. I was in favor of keeping him earlier, but there are lots of 4 & 5 candidates. This money is needed for the top part of the staff.
Lohse can still be traded. He might make a good guy to put in a deal. Teams with money are looking for starters and for those teams his contract is no big deal. He could be a good guy in a package.
If trading him fails, then non-tender.
