At the beginning of the offseason I said sign the best pitcher that you can for 3/36 and be done with it. Haren was my choice then but Marcum was my backup plan so I'm okay with this. Right now Marcum and Dempster are the only guys that remotely deserve that kind of money aside from Jackson and Sanchez who should get more.

I would love to bring him in on a 3 year deal. Ideally we would still have enough left to take a run at a guy like Jackson.

If the Twins can bring in Marcum I would be more ok with the Corriea signing. A rotation of Marcum, Diamond, Worley, Corriea, & Gibson has some pretty decent potential. At least a better look to it than last year...
Even with Marcum I think they bring in another low cost guy on a 1 year deal, Lannan would probably be it.
Then you have Gibson/Hendriks waiting in the wings. I think Ryan realizes they absolutely need "legit arms" to fill the rotation, even if a few of those arms are lifetime #5 type guys.

Add in Gibson mid-season and that rotation actually looks pretty good going into 2014 (since I think Hendriks/Gibson will force Correia out of the rotation at some point).
