First, Dunn and Kearns are going no where.
second. It was a trade idea.
Ok, so sign Luis Castillo in the off season, and trade some bodies for Burnett.
What would it take? Outside of Dunn and Kearns, cause they are going no where.
My point is. This team needs an Ace who is a stopper. A guy who makes it very difficult to get swept in a series. A pitcher who can go toe to toe with Schilling or Johnson.
Colon was available, and he was not going to cost us Kearns or Dunn, so think about that. Bowden could not get the funds for the green light to trade for Colon.
So, what pitcher besides Burnett is out there that is a young stud, and where a deal is attainable.
Besides Colon, and he probably will not be avilable in the offseason. What a waste for the Expos to get him. Better than the Cards or Astros I guess but they could not match up well with Cleveland anyway.
So, whos out there? Or do you want Bowden to aquire more Villiones?
