I am starting to think that the player that Walt is really looking for is a starting pitcher. Doc mentioned in his blog that the Reds made an offer for Grienke and have at least talked to the Cubs about Dempster. Other pitchers that may be available are Cliff Lee and Josh Johnson.

This makes a lot of sense to me. Outside of Cueto, who is a real post-season pitcher of the starting 5?

Also, what is wrong with Josh Johnson this season? Is there a reason that his numbers are down?
