I am happy but shocked. Another front line starter please.

Deberg_1990 11-20-2012 09:22 AM

OK...Bravo :clap:

Codered 11-20-2012 09:23 AM

Guthrie, Santana, and ?? It's atleast a step in the right direction.

Kraus 11-20-2012 09:26 AM

Nice. It is a start.

CaliforniaChief 11-20-2012 09:27 AM

Very pleased. If he pitches like he did when we acquired him, that's a great move.

If not, it's still great for trying.

Now we just need one more starter. FA/trade.

Don't like that third year.

We likely had to include third year to get him to stay. Guessing.

Stewie 11-20-2012 09:35 AM

I'm surprised and pleased!

Well, yeah (although Moore is notorious for misreading the market).

The question is: Is Guthrie worth 3 years?

A lot depends on what the salary numbers are. I like the guy, and I wanted him back, preferably at two years. I don't think he's a must-have at three years, considering his age.

OTOH, if this means Luke Hochevar is non-tendered, I'll take it.

Happy we're continuing to address the problem, hope that we aren't finished. We still haven't traded anything on the farm, so I have to believe there's one more move in that direction.

If that happens, I'll love this signing.

If it doesn't, I still like it.

I hope Guthrie figured it out. Odd structure in last two years leads me to believe he will be gone by trade deadline in 2014. I am optimistic, but also realistic. I hope I am wrong.

KevB 11-20-2012 09:47 AM

I think most believed 3 for 24 was what it would take to sign him, and it's right on that number. Not a terrible deal, but as SK said, we might not be thrilled during his age 36 season.
