Kevin Correia On The Trade Block

  • Actually, the Cubs make a terrific trading partner for Correia. We can include a minor league RP like Tim Wood and get David DeJesus back; then the Cubs can energize their fan base by calling up Rizzo. DeJesus immediately becomes our 3rd best hitter.

  • His 4.89 xFIP makes Correia a legitimate fifth starter. Most fifth starters have an xFIP that is at least that high. But, with the Pirates, 4.89 might not be good enough to stay in the rotation.

    • I was wrong. There are thirteen “fifth” starters who have an xFIP higher than Correia’s. Two teams have two regular starting pitchers with an xFIP higher than Correia’s 4.89. But that leaves eighteen teams with a fifth starter who has a better xFIP than Correia.

  • Dumb to be shopping him now. Keep on running him out there, if he pitches well there will be a market for him. And who knows if Karstens is really ‘back’. He hasn’t shown it yet this year.

  • They honestly have to just trade him for Cash. No value will come from that.

    No GM in their right mind will give up anything of value for Correia.

    Good thing there are GMs out there that are out of their minds!

  • I hear Drew Sutton is available. And Brad Eldred, and…

    oh wait…

  • Let us hope Correia crushes the Tiggers tomorrow, besting Verlander and striking out 10 in seven innings.

    “Alex, I’ll take wishful thinking for $100.”

  • and there was much rejoicing
