I agree with you.. Edwin Jackson and Kuroda had to wait around and they ended up with 1 year contracts for less than 13 million.
I just don't think anyone considers Lohse an ace.. Although maybe the Cardinals end up resigning him for big money on multiple years since he's important to their rotation.
It just seems that teams are more leary of giving big multiyear deals to above average (ie non-ace) pitchers..
BJ Upton ought to think it over too.. If he accepts arb, maybe Tampa is forced to give him a multiyear deal and trade him.. Surely Tampa does not want him to accept..
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
