Chicago is the new Arizona.

Glad to see you're just figuring this out.  :whistle:

This is a guy who made 30+ starts every year from 2008 through 2019, and until last year did not have an era or xFIP over 4.50. Maybe last year is his true new level, but it's also true that last year was unusual.  He still made 12 starts, by the way

Also, this is not just a "Davey" guy. Hickey is here and knows Lester.

I think Lester at this point is a stable vet at the back of the rotation with a bit of an upside. Very similar to Anibal but I think less of a downside. Rubber arm innings eater

Yeah, this. I like the move.

Because he's like every thing we've done so far. High risk. High reward. 
What's the risk? It's a one year deal.

Theres minimal risk, but a low ceiling

If you count baserunning as part of defense, yes, that bad.
You never saw the 62 Mets.

There's a Lester-specific thread now.

I really don’t see it as they are aiming to just not be bad. I think they are aiming for some to bounce back, and if they aren’t devastated by injuries be competitive in the NL.

he's kind of the opposite. There's upside, but he's at worst an innings eater now.

As a #4 with Joe Ross a potential #5, I really like it.
this. We aren't force feeding 2 guys with big blow up potential who've never proven anything more than a month in the majors into our rotation.
