He walks too many and doesn't strike out enough.  And despite that he had a successful season.

Sounds like Gallardo.  Same team even.

That's fine, I maintain that they are very different pitchers. By the time Gallardo got here, he had almost no differential between his fastball and changeup. His arm was toast. Not the case with Cashner. 

You can have the same peripherals and different levels of success.

As a #3 slotted SP, he will be fine here. You can pencil him for 180 innings!

Except that he's only thrown 180 innings in a season once. And he turns 32 soon. His durability is a question, but I'll gladly take him at this point. He is a stud compared to most of our staff.

I don't think any of us have a problem with him at the price given the team's current options.

Yeah...usually I don't care for most of the FA signings regardless of the teams standings. 

I'm not convinced that his groundball success will help him in Baltimore as much as it did in Texas.

I agree with you. Not a sore arm dude.
