(Brad Lincoln > Kevin Correia) & (Rodriguez > Maholm)

In watching the game last night, I realy dont see why we need Correia next  year. Lincoln is at worst, a younger version of Correia, with slightly better stuff who costs almost nothing. If there was a way to get houston to take correia, and we get Wandy? Sounds rediculous, but, we are in a position to take on some salary, and Correia, is the kind of pitcher that a rebuilding team needs on their staff, a totally mediocre guy, who doesnt cost much and can presumebly teach young guys how to fall asleep in a hotel room.  What this would do is, essentially, replace Maholm with Wandy, and disocount his salary by the amount of Correia's contract.

 

Our Staff would then look like this:

 

1. Karstens - 1.5 mil (arbitration number?)

2. Rodriguez - 10 mil

3. Morton - 2 mil (arbitration number?)

4. Mcdonald - 500k

5. Lincoln - 500k

Total ; 14.5 million

 

As opposed to:

 

1. Karstens - 1.5 mil (arbitration number?)

2.  Maholm- 8.5 mil (estimate based on ted lilly's contract)

3. Morton - 2 mil (arbitration number?)

4. Mcdonald - 500k

5. Correia- 3mill

 

total: 15.5 million.

 

Which would you rather have? Now its probably a stretch to get the astros to take correia, but, you never know, rebuilding teams do weird stuff.
