A “Penny” for your thoughts?

Most Brewers fans have come to terms on two things:

1.  Our two best starting pitchers from 2008 are long gone

                 C.C. walks to his waiting jet plane.  Destination=New York City

Ben and Seaver Sheets say goodbye to
“God’s Country”

and say “hello” to

2.  We don’t plan on spending significant dollars on front-line free agent pitchers

If we won’t spend this…

How about this?

Well, not really.
But, we would get this guy.

They say he’s working hard this offseason because things kinda fell apart in L.A. last year.  He has a proven track record and has a great groundball ratio (good for pitching at Miller Park).  He also seems to be determined to prove some people wrong.
I like pitchers with attitude.

Could get him for 2 yrs. 15 million…I don’t know-just a guess.
I say, “why not?”
