However, I do believe Krivsky will get either Haren or Bedard, because when he really gets determined to acquire something, (in this case a top shelf pitcher), he usually does it- even if he has to overpay. I'm just hoping he doesn't overpay by too much.
Belisle could be just as valuable in the pen as he would be in the rotation. At one point in the season his starts were skipped. To say his rotation spot is solidified no matter what is pre-mature. I think if you add a control guy like Towers and trade for a Capuano or Lee and factor in Bailey and or Cueto (who some scouts say is further along then Bailey) where does that leave Belisle?
