    Fair enough. I think this offseason should be more about getting the most reward for the buck. If that comes with a lot of risk, so be it. That was my stance, the trouble with Correia is that he's safely awful and we guaranteed a staggering amount of money for that.

    Won't contest that last point, agreed.

    If 5 mil a year for a #3-4 starter (Go look up the actual ERAs of those rotation positions, please) staggers you, I hope you were lying down when you saw the Grienke deal.

    Who is staggered by 5 Mil on a 3-4 starter? I'm staggered by 10 Mil over 2 years for a borderline 5th starter with no upside.

    If Kevin Correia is a #3, a lot has changed in the league in the past two months (ie. half the league contracted smallpox and died).

    To me , i am amazed that we would spend that kind of money on a non asset type of player, after this year who is going to offer us any thing for him?if we are building for the future shouldnt we sign players that will help us in the future,or players who will bring us prospect in a trade?

    Just because you don't think something should be true, doesn't negate it: Pirates Prospects Ľ What Should You Expect From Each Rotation Spot?
    #1 – 3.36 ERA or better
    #2 – 3.36 – 3.88 ERA
    #3 – 3.88 – 4.38 ERA
    #4 – 4.38 – 5.15 ERA
    #5 – 5.15 ERA or worse
    Depending on what you truly believe Correia's ERA will settle out at in the AL, His career starter numbers have fluctuated between #2 and #5, most commonly straddling 3/4. It's what is actually happening in the leagues. Although I will account for the possibility that the past couple of years have edged those numbers down, as offenses have been less productive. As seen elsewhere, Correia has done quite well in 100 interleague innings. Of course this is hardly any indication how he will do on a regular basis, it does suggest that perhaps he isn't going to completely melt down when not getting 2-3 free outs a game.

    As I quote Pat Roycy, if Correia is worth $10M, then Grienke is easily worth $147M.

    If Correia is worth $10M then I am easily worth $1M.
