While I’d be comfortable with Wheeler alone, having Lugo as a multi-inning guy would definitely help our entire pitching staff stay fresh for the 2nd half, and hopefully the postseason. And if this happens to be the path that the FO ends up taking; great, but I still want Vazquez.
Scratch that, Lugo would only jack up the price to an unfair amount due to his controllability. While I do like him, I feel like we could easily get the same kind of performance from a much cheaper option. Instead of Lugo, why not Ian Kennedy? I mean, he is a former starter (as recently as last season), no reason he can’t be an as effective multi-inning reliever as Lugo.
Also, what’s with the infatuation over dual pitcher trades??
