Offense, yeah, that'd be nice, but I'd rather take my chances with what we've got and focus on pitching. I don't see any reason why we'd want to keep Lowe around after this season... absolutely none. Well ok, unless he would agree on a 1 year contract for a quarter. Then maybe. If it's anyone it's him who's hitting the road this offseason.
Arroyo/Kim are the definitions of 5th starter. Don't expect a ton out of them and they'll be alright. What we need is a new 3rd/4th and boot some guy to the pen. Lowe is atrocious, and Wakefield is having some kind of issue with his knuckler. We can't keep them both in the rotation if they're not going to snap out of it.
The happiest news I'll hear one morning this summer is an announcement that we got Jamie Moyer, Miguel Batista and/or Russ Ortiz.
