    Yeah, I was waaaaaaayyy off-base on Sanchez. I didn't see his 2013 season coming at all. Not with the transition to the AL and leaving Marlins Park/Pro Players/whatever the hell they called it.

    Of course, there's still a lot of time left on that contract to be right but so far, it's looking really good for the Tigers.

    Me in April:

    "Guess I'll turn on the Twins game."

    "What's that? Oh, Pelfrey's pitching? And the count is 3-2?"

    "I think I'll just watch Dances With Wolves real quick then flip the game back on and see what happened with this batter. Before you know it, we'll be in the second inning!"

    I like Pelfrey on a two-year deal for (relatively) cheap. The seond half aof last season he had the highest velocity (94-95) and so/9 (7.1) of his career, showing that there is definitely potential upside there at age 29. If it doesn't work out, so what? $5-6M/yr. on a short-term deal is chump change these days for starting pitching. I also would sign either Arroyo at 3/$36M or Garza at 4/$64, but that's as high as i would go in years or dollars for either.

    It looks like the market going forward (with new TV revenue dollars) is shaping up like this: $5-8M/yr for #4-5 starters, $9-12M for 3+, 3, 3- starters, $13-16M, yr. for 2+, 2, 2- starters, $17-19M for 1- starters and $20M+/yr. for the 7-10 truly dominant "aces".

    I would rate Correia, Pelfrey and Hughes as solid 4/5 guys that most teams would welcome at the back end of their rotations. Nolasco and Arroyo are 3+ guys and Garza a 2+.

    I think I'm coming around to resigning Pelfrey, 2 years off of tommy john, he could be better. I would love it if they signed Garza. He has very good stuff. I'm not sure he wants to return to Rick "pitch to contact" Anderson though. Not his style.

    Would be awesome if they would get him though.
