Re: New Approach: Find a 2013 FA SP to Acquire
It would have to be a sweet deal. Something expendable like Chris Valaika and Jordan Smith for Zambrano and $15 Million. Not sure there are many bullets left in his gun and even if the Cubs cover all the money, I wouldn't give up a top trade chip unless its somebody I'm confident will actually fix the rotation. The Reds have question marks in spades. Adding another who might be a bad apple doesn't seem like a fix. Even if you could get him on a favorable deal, I'd still be looking to add some one with more certainty.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
