Here’s something I’ve been a little puzzled about as I check in on AN: Why isn’t anyone willing to mention signing Kenny Rogers? The guy can’t lose at the McAfee and it’s not like we’d have to sign him for five years or pay him more than what Billy had originally set aside for Esteban Why-Didn’t-We-Get-Anyone-In-Return?
If we do end up trading Blanton to get younger and more talented offensively, we’d definitely need to fill a rotation hole. If we do end up keeping Big Joe, the idea of Justin and Chad starting 50 or more games can’t help but make even the most devout Athletic fan more than a little nervous.
It is really his age? Because with our history (Milton, etc) it can’t be his attitude and last time I checked our rotation was a little lefty thin.
