i agree with this assessment. the one thing i will say is that he is essentially a league average innings muncher and players like that have a decent amount of value in MLB. in fact it is alarming how much they are being paid in free agency. that being said, he's cheaper than the free agent alternative.
i am a fan of getting cardenas.
