My opinion is, just like how we saw JZimm last year start to slow down towards the 160 limit, we will see Stras do it as well. I have a feeling that somewhere around the upper 140 innings or so, we start to see Stras just get really tired and not have the break or life and the velocity may drop a bit. I know Mark Lerner said the team doesn't want a rental, but honestly that is the best thing to get for this year's team.
Answer -> Ryan Dempster.
Although I'm not his biggest fan and think we could use a better catcher, I think we just stick with Flores until the offseason, then dump him since I doubt we offer him arbitration.
As an aside, I'm trying not to say "we" as in the team, but "we" as in the fans/fanbase. I don't want to sound like I actually go out on the field and help contribute!
