Good morning folks, hope you’re all doing well. Today on the site we’re diving into some key pitchers that are available via trade, but come at a high cost. Josh begins with a breakdown of Luis Castillo and what has turned him into an elite starter, and later on Peter will give Blake Snell a similar treatment. Alongside those pieces, Cooper highlights Eddie Rosario and his unique standing — though not for good reasons. Finally, Dan gives us a look back at Elston Howard’s days as a Kansas City Monarch in recognition of the Negro League’s elevation to MLB status.
1. If cost wasn’t a concern and both teams were willing to negotiate, would you rather the Yankees trade for Luis Castillo or Blake Snell?
2. Now that it’s officially winter, what are your plans for entertainment during this last stretch of baseball-less time?
