Dirty Sanchez

*Please note that this is not a reactionary "TRADE SANCHEZ" post.* I am just curious as to the fellow McCoven's views of Sanchez. I for one, find him to be a talented left handed pitcher, but I also find him to be very expendable and highly overrated by many Giants fans. People seem to think he is some valuable asset. Yes, normally LHP's who throw in the low 90s fastball, good slider and high K rates are rare and very good to have, but not so much when they fail to find the strike zone consistently. I for some time have thought that Sanchez should be the kind of prospect or pitcher that we can form a deal around to get a decent younger hitter. Although lately I'm wondering if he can even return something like that with the continued meh pitching performances.

 

So my questions for you are: What do you think Sanchez's ceiling is? Do you think he is capable of being a ML starter? Or will his command ultimately force him to become reliever? And last but not least, would you trade Sanchez? Or do you find him to be an important piece to the GIants future?

 

I myself think he's a poor man's Oliver Perez at best. Although I find he might have higher upside if thrown into a set-up role or even as a closer. But even then I have doubts about his abilities to throw strikes consistently in a closer role. So perhaps middle relief/set-up like Affedlt was forced to do in KC after failing as a starter.
