Starting Pitching




So, the pirates NEED starting pitching. I dont think signing De La Rosa will be a good idea in the long run with the Altoona group. So, how do we add starting pitching without spending the top dollar? I can think of two things: Try to catch lightning in a bottle with someone like J.D or I just read something about Bartolo Colon making a comeback and I think he is the perfect fit at 900,000[including incentives], The other thing is let Kevin Hart, Charlie Morton, Brad Lincoln, and maybe crotta and McCutchen. 

I like the pirates to sign Colon and a couple minor league free agents with an invite to spring training. I still see Brad Lincoln as a no. 2 starter with Kerrigan messing with his mechanics. you can never give up with Morton and he finally got his confidence to throw his fastball. Another thing is that I think the pitchers are more relaxed at the mound with Snyder behind the plate. With 3 rotation spots took up, I dont think any pitcher for more than seven million should be signed. Now, if I saw they signed him and it was for about 11 million I wouldnt freak out.
