For what 2 Eric Milton's? The pitching market MOST years is barren unless you want to throw more than Dunn money at. With Harang and the Kids we shouldnt be that worried about the rotation. Granted you can never have enough pitching. Dunn type money shouldnt be needed to fix the flaws in the pen and on the bench just smarter investments.
If Cast is being honest about opening the checkbook there should be 0 problems resigning Dunn and growing the finances for the team. Just find someone who manages to get his best bats up the most rather than plays to keep LH Specialist from being effective for 1 inning and costing the team outs, "Respect", and I think you'd see a pretty good response from this young team.
