At some point the goal is to have the bulk of the young pitchers develop and lead the team to success, right? Explain why the Reds should listen to offers for DeSclafani.
Good point wolves. And don't get me wrong, it would have to be quite a deal to let Disco walk, but he's certainly not untouchable. Disco is good, but he's not a #1 type starter. He's a #3/ #4 type starter. Maybe #2 on a bad team.
The other goal is to have a stable of young arms that we can roll over ever 3 years so we don't have to pay top starters Monopoly money. The key is to get the guys through your organization before that big payday comes up.
