Anyone who would take Ervin Santana back for that contract and give up the 15th pick? I hate giving up first rounders, especially since they have done that a bunch lately. I hate it even more since they chose Joe Blanton over Santana last year, and would now have to give up a pick for a player who spent all but one season in Red. 


Most baseball mock drafts have us selecting a high school starting pitcher, someone who in all likelihood will not make the majors until 2017 at the earliest.


With Santana at the #3, and Richards at the #4, the Halos would suddenly have rotation depth.


Santana did have a bad year in 2012, good year in 2013, but also good years in 2010 and 2011. He may outpitch his peripherals, but he's a 3.0 WAR pitcher. 


He's going to give you 200+ innings, 30+ starts for the next few years.

I wonder if one plan is to wait the first 2 months until the 2014 draft, and then if a 5th pitcher is still needed and Erv is still available, would the Halos then offer a contract to him as they would then not need to give up a 1st round pick plus the amount may not be as much to sign him for.

Only problem with that is he would need 4-6 weeks to get ready, which takes us to around the ASB. 


Bear in mind though that re-acquisitions a lot of times don't work out.
