I know this seems like a reactionary post based on yesterday's performance, but I have been thinking about it for a few weeks as the likelihood of the Tribe still contending during the trade deadline has increased.
Fausto is still owed just under 7 million for next year, with club options for 2012-2014 thereafter. Keep in mind that 7 million is still a decent bargain for an MLB starter. For example, Jake Westbrook will be making 8+ million a year for the next few years as a Cardinal.
It seems to me, with our (relative) wealth of guys ready to make the step up to the big leagues from AAA (Jeanmar, McAllister, White) that Fausto is extremely expendable. If we do make the playoffs this year, would Fausto even be one of our top three pitchers going into that first round?
Yes he does.
No we shouldn't.
Yes he would.
What I meant to say was:
No he doesn't.
Yes we should.
