So to this point in the season, our pitching has been pretty much as impressive as we'd been hoping for it to be. Lincecum's showing Cy Young form, Cain has been good minus one bad start, Correia is doing decently, Valdez has been shining in his relief role, and Wilson has for the most part been a shut-down closer. And Sanchez is doing excellent. He is technically in a tie with Timmy for 1st in the majors in strikeouts (Aaron Harang is actually first, but he has an extra start because he's the Reds #1 starter.) He's set his career high for strikeouts twice so far this season with two outings where he racked up 10 K's a piece. And both of those outings he's held the other team to one run or less.
So what should we do with him? We can trade him for a decent haul of prospects to a team that really needs a starter, like maybe the Yankees or the Angels or somebody. Or we can hold on to him and keep him in our rotation, which aside from Barry Zito has the potential to be pretty badass. What would be better for us, trading him or keeping him? Would it be worth getting some position prospects to add to our lineup eventually, or would it be smarter for us to keep him and wait for some of the prospects we already have to develop an make our offense good enough to contend?
