    Would you take Lohse now for 1 year, $5 MM?

    Apparently what he's willing to settle for now. I would, and I'd send Affeldt to the pen and let Fogg pitch out of the 5 spot if Volquez isn't ready (although I think he will be.)

    If we're out of contention by the deadline (or if the kids are ready to join the roation,) flip him to a contender again for another Maloney. Hell, we could do this every year
    Go BLUE!!!

    I know I should say yes. But too much money for me. I'd give him 1-2 million like Fogg. not 5MM.
    And This One Belongs to the REDS!!!

    I think this would've made more sense if that Reds hadn't signed Fogg. Since they did, it doesn't make sense.

    If their new goal is to pick up as many spare parts as possible, then I guess so.

    I'd rather sign another 2.5 Juan Durans.

    Not a bad thought.

    I would absolutely take him for $5,000,000.00.

    He's a better BOR solution than Fogg or Bailey or Cueto or Maloney at this point.

    Do Bailey and Cueto (and possibly Maloney) have more upside than Lohse? You betcha.

    Do Bailey, Cueto and Maloney need more time in AAA? You betcha.

    Therefore, 5 big ones is chump change is it allows us to properly harvest our crop of youngsters. Properly harvesting youngsters seems to be a foreign concept around these parts, so perhaps we'd continue to look at that 5 mil for Lohse as money ill-spent.

    I voted yes, but....only if this means Fogg is dumped.

    And honestly, I'm not sure anymore. Ask again later, after we get a better idea of how the kids are doing.

    So you'd pay $3MM for Maloney if he was available for a price?

    Lohse in the #3 spot makes our rotation that much stronger, bumping everyone down one.

    It would give us, at worst, a league average rotation, as Harang would be clearly above average, Arroyo likely above average, Lohse average, Belise average to below average, and hopefully our #5 close to average.

    He'd first have to remove it from the shadow-box frame in the Kyle Lohse shrine in his house.
