I edited my post - I realized Alderson won't be there next year. In 2011, though, that's what the rotation could look like.

Watch out for Rudy Owens also. He pitched a 1 hitter the other night for WV and is now 11-1 for the season. I think yall might have a jewel in him. If any of yall is having trouble and unhappy about the players you got back today look at what the Indians did. A Cy Young pitcher for a guy that is 3 years away and one that cant pitch for crap in AAA. The Pirates obtained alot of talent and will be a better team because of it. Also does this mean Neil Walker gets called up to replace Sanchez?

Owens has had a fine season for WV but seems to be under the radar - no one really talks about him. This will get him a promotion to Lynchburg next year, and if he does the same there, how could nobody NOT talk about him?

Yes, the Indians did get hosed in that deal for Cliff Lee. You mean they couldn't get any more than that for him? Even Neal Huntington would have done better than that. Sheesh!

Walker probably isn't going to get a call-up any time soon - he has been a major disappointment. They're going to call up Lastings Milledge today to take Sanchez's roster spot and Delwyn Young will get the bulk of the work at 2B. Milledge will split time with Brandon Moss in RF and hopefully he wins the job outright.

Seeing how the Pirates have now pretty much adopted the Indians Philosophy for moving up players, I wouldn't be stunned if he gets no higher then Indy between now and the end of 2010.

The fact that we can have 6, 7, or 8 different solid Starters in the near future is a true fact of how far along we have come along

I still think Moskos can pan out as a solid starter, but even if he eventually moves back to the bullpen, a lefty with a great fastball/slider combo can really help late in the game.

He hasn't been to shabby at Altoona this year. I won't be stunned if he's in Pittsburgh soon.

Looks like the Cubs are close to getting Grabow and maybe Gorzo.
