I certainly would like to get a guy to lead that rotation and be a front-of-the-rotation guy, via free agency or trades or that type of thing. Those, as you know, are few and far between. They're tough to get and often expensive to get. But I feel comfortable with the depth. I do think we need a leader of that rotation. That would be one of our needs in the offseason.I took a quick glance at the free agents available for 2011, and Javier Vazquez jumped out at me. He's struggled again in New York this season, but he was one of the very best pitchers in baseball last year in Atlanta.
More interestingly, he's right on the cusp of slipping to Type B free agency. Keep an eye on the Elias Rankings updates on MLB Trade Rumors, and if Vazquez slips out of Type A free agency in the last couple weeks of the season, which is certainly possible, look for him to become a top target for a bounce-back year with the franchise that drafted him 16 years ago.
