I was originally interested in Livan, but he really, really sucked down the strectch last year with some horrible periferals. I wouldn't be surprised to see him really struggle next year.

I don't think Trachsel will be considerably worse than him this season, and he'll be doing it for a MLC rather than $6M guaranteed.

I diasgree re: Trax vs. Livan.

The stated goal was to sign a veteran innings eater.

Hernandez has averaged over 225 IP per season for the last decade (Trachsel's never hurled that many even once) & he's a former World Series MVP.

Probably he wasn't willing to come here, but if he was, there's no way you can convince me Trachsel was the better choice.

I agree. Plus Trachsel's contract probably says that if he makes the team he'll get at least 1.5 million or 3 million or something like that.

But I'm assuming Livan wasn't interested.
