Look I like giving young guys a shot as much as the next guy, but this just seems crazy to me.
Where is this team going to get innings from? Dallas threw about 140 IP 2 years ago, and 130 last year. Anderson 105, Cahill 124, Outman 120ish. Eveland at least has thrown some innings, but I would worry about these kids getting tired (along with the bullpen) as the season goes on.
It's possible these young guys start off well, but I would have concerns about holding onto an A's pitcher all year.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike
