See alot of McCarthy, Sanchez, Marcum, and Haren love on this board. But they all come with ?'s to say the least.
Sanchez- has had multiple arm injuries and are we to base on what he did in playoffs as what we'll get for entire season if he can continue to stay healthy?
McCarthy- hit in head last yr and fractured skull, not to mention injured arm last yr prior?
Marcum- also has battled injuries and velocity down to 86-87, in AL East?
Haren- Bad back anyone?
But the guy no one seems to be mentioning is Edwin Jackson. Who we might be able to get on a short term deal [signed for 1yr last yr] he's pitched in AL East before, he avg's 197 IP for his career [something the RS desperately need] would be a perfect 3-4 starter on this team. Seems to come w/ less question marks than all the others. He would also be pricey but if short term til Barnes and Webster are ready, he seems to make the most sense for me. RS can't afford ?'s right now, if you can gaurentee that D.Haren is healthy, he would be the guy for me. But no one can. If RS could sign both I would be very happy. Haren to a incentive laden contract + Jackson a guy I know will give us 200 IP.
