Anders, Vasquez’s option we’ll force him too…

?-Yeah, I guess Bobby was really stupid leaving him pitch the 7th when he had given up that one run the first six. and only having two outs when Hanley hit that HR.

Lowe is 25th among SP in FIP, 2nd among SP in GB%, 3rd in GB/FB, 34th in WAR. He’s a no. 2 getting paid like a no. 2 (his estimated worth has been about 12.5MM/year so far…could easily get to 15MM with a few solid starts).
True ace starters get paid upwards of 18-20MM in free agency (see: Johan Santana, CC Sabathia, Jake Peavy, Carlos Zambrano). No. 2 starters get paid in the 13-17MM dollar range on the free agent market. See: Lowe, Derek, Buehrle, Mark and Burnett, AJ.
(Of course, there is also Barry Zito, but we’ll call him an outlier or just “Brian Sabean is stupid”)

Look its not always about having an Ace I would take our staff over that of the yankees. We have more solid pitchers from top to bottom.

“Look its not always about having an Ace I would take our staff over that of the yankees. We have more solid pitchers from top to bottom.”
Top to bottom we are solid and thats even with Derek Lowe struggling who while he is not an Ace is still a solid top of the rotation starter.

And please, keep in mind that I’m talking about pitchers who actually reach free agency, not those who sign extensions or aren’t even arb-eligible yet…
