Re: A's acquire Jed Lowrie from Astros
three if's in the rotation... or just one. a return to Houston might be perfect for Oswalt, And I think Lohse is a solid #3.
Plus, Houston cleaned house. fences with Bourn could be mended.
I mean, really? Erik Bedard? He couldn't win with a decent team in Pittsburgh. or stay healthy. Has Humber ever been good outside one season?
Looking at the stats from 2012, only Wilton Lopez was interesting, and he's a Rockie now.
3-5 moves creates the bridge. Overpay a little to let agents know you might overpay a lot for real talent. the switch to the AL will bring in a few fans, Ranger games might sell out, but it looks to be a long season if they don't even moderately upgrade that rotation.
