    your turning green moon.

    with the pitching talent we have in the minors we could potentially have a young rotation like that in just a few years.

    but see thats just it, we wont cuz by the time the sox actually call up webster and then eventually barnes and de la rosa (assuming neither of those 2 is traded) lester will be over 30, buch will be right around 30 and doubront will be 27/28. We are wasting 2 spots right now on lackey and dempster. lackey we were already stuck with but dempster we wasted 30 mill on. what happens if webster dominates AAA and then we have no spot open? same goes for barnes. we have dempster and lackey for 2 years.

    that's why i said in a few years...... Lesters contract runs out in 2 years same with buch, Dempster, Lackey (not with the bonus year). You can always deal away anyone who is "blocking" our young pitching prospects when their time comes. Every team is always looking for extra pitching, that is a fact. Your making a mountain out of a molehill IMO. By the time Barnes, RDLR, Webster and the other pitching farmhands are ready most of our current rotation will be out the door (pending a resign of Buch/Lester. which i'm OK with FTR) and if they are ready earlier than expected then it's a minor inconvenience to make a trade and clear out room in the rotation.

    Whats wrong with having a good veteran pitcher on the staff? What if Lester is dealing at 32? How ablout Buch. They dont ALL have to be 26 to be good. A good mix is always the best way to go unless your a team like the A's and cant afford it.

    True, but all things being equal, I'll take 24-27 and great vs 29-31 and great.

    Im not saying your wrong. I hear ya. Youth is good. Its just my personal preference to have a solid vet on the team for the young guys. Thats why Im a fan of Dempster (maybe not the age so much) But hes good for the young guys.

    Re: Nice Young Rotations

    Last year, the A's won the AL West with four rookie starters.  They now have a year of MLB experience.  

    I think the A's have the best starting rotation in the AL which is why I picked them (before the season started) to win the AL West again.  

    But Boston has the best one-two punch (Lester, Buccholz).

    The Red Sox.

    Lester <30

    Buchholz < 30

    Webster < 30

    Doubront < 30

    Dempster - 37, but still getting swings and misses.

     

    I just wish we'd cut the crap with this Aceves on teh mound thing and put Webster in there.  The guy was Olney's pick for ROY

    I don't disagree on having at least one solid vet in the rotation, especially come playoff time, but I'm not with you on Dempster as that choice.

    Yes, and Aceves has struggled as a starter.

    I'd take the '29-31 and great'

     not only are they more pitching savvy

    odds favor they already had their  TJ surgery

    TORONTO!

    Josh Johnson--11.05---2.73
    R.A. Dickey--8.44---1.97
    Mark Buehrle--10.24---1.76
    Brandon Morrow--5.59---1.97

     

    Oh, you meant BEST young staff.

    I might throw Texas into the mix since they have to pitch in a hitters park. And all 5 starters are in their 20's.
