Cubs should sign Anibal Sanchez. Here's why:
Posted 12 November 2012 - 04:18 PM
He has been consistent. Around 195 IP per year, 44.5% GB rate, with a .300 BABIP, 0.82 HR/9, around 10% HR/FB, LOB 73.5%. His WHIP has been down-trending as well as his BB%, so I think we'll get his strongest years around '15-'16 (when we'll be competitive).
$15M in '13 (29 years old) for $100M payroll is 15%
$15M in '14 (30 years old) for $105M payroll is 14%
$15M in '15 (31 years old) for $110M payroll is 13.6%
$15M in '16 (32 years old) for $115M payroll is 13%
$15M in '17 (33 years old) for $120M payroll is 12.5%
$15M in '18 (34 years old) for $125M payroll is 12%
No reason to flip this free agent. His playoff experience should also help in the future.

Add Sanchez to a healthy Garza, Shark, Wood, and some one like Marcum, and all of a sudden you have a rotation that looks pretty good.
Yes, Yes, Yes. That would be a pretty good (and flippable, if need be). Even if you were able to trade 2 of Garza, Marcum and Baker you would still have some solid pieces going into next offseason in Shark, Wood and Sanchez.
