The Free Agent Starting Pitchers

Recommended Posts

I know the O's are not going to be splashy spenders this offseason.  I know we've been burned by free agent pitchers in the recent past (Ubaldo Jimenez, Alex Cobb, etc.). But take a look at this list. 

Who is one pitcher you think they should pursue and why?

Starting Pitchers

Brett Anderson (33)
Chase Anderson (33)
Chris Archer (32)
Jake Arrieta (35)
Homer Bailey (35)
Trevor Bauer (30)
Trevor Cahill (33)
Tyler Chatwood (31)
Anthony DeSclafani (31)
Robbie Erlin (30)
Mike Fiers (36)
Mike Foltynewicz (29)
Kevin Gausman (30)
Zack Godley (31)
Gio Gonzalez (35)
Cole Hamels (37)
J.A. Happ (38)
Rich Hill (41)
Corey Kluber (35)
Mike Leake (33)
Wade LeBlanc (36)
Jon Lester (37)
Tommy Milone (34)
Mike Minor (33)
Matt Moore (32)
Charlie Morton (37)
Jimmy Nelson (32)
Ivan Nova (34)
Jake Odorizzi (31)
James Paxton (32)
Martin Perez (30)
Rick Porcello (32)
Jose Quintana (32)
Robbie Ray (29)
Garrett Richards (33)
Tyson Ross (34)
Jeff Samardzija (36)
Anibal Sanchez (37)
Matt Shoemaker (34)
Drew Smyly (32)
Marcus Stroman (30)
Masahiro Tanaka (32)
Julio Teheran (30)
Michael Wacha (29)
Adam Wainwright (39)
Taijuan Walker (28)
Alex Wood (30)
Jordan Zimmermann (35)

Ray is off the board.  

First free agent deal of the offseason is done. Left-hander Robbie Ray and the Toronto Blue Jays are in agreement on a one-year, $8 million deal, a source familiar with the contract tells ESPN. Good start to the hot stove for Toronto, which will use Ray as a starter, and for Ray.

I can't believe how old that list is. Even the young guys are old. 

I'm getting old.

Random observation: Mark Prior is younger than Rich Hill and he hasn't pitched in the majors since 2006.

Absolutely and completely unrelated and apologies for being off topic, but Mark's name reminded me of Kerry Wood which reminded me of this documentary about Wood's 20k game which is excellent IMO

So....in a complete useless attempt to keep it on topic, what about Hill, he pitched well in 8 games for the Twins last year.  Probably too expensive for the O's regardless.

Stroman accepted the QO.  Scratch him off the list.

Because agents gotta agent, and the market must play itself out in all its garish beauty, Rosenthal has a leak that Kevin Gausman "has multi-year offers", but I'll be gobsmacked if he walks away from 1/19 before the deadline coming up this evening.

If Stroman accepting is betting on himself, what will it be if Gausman takes 2/25 or 3/33 from somebody?

Damn...with Cohen there, he may figure that if he pitches well, that he will get a big deal.

He apparently likes New York..for some reason.

Playing it safe? Doubting himself? Stupid?

I think Gausman should take the 1/19, particularly if 2/25 is all he can get. He's been inconsistent in his career, but you'd have to think he would be pretty bad to not warrant a 1/6 next year from someone.

Well, at least we won’t have to hear SG complaining about the Orioles not pursuing him.
