Starting pitchers and long-term contracts

Giving long-term contracts to starting pitchers is generally seen as a bad idea, but how bad are these contracts in reality? With Lance Lynn out for the 2016 season with Tommy John surgery, there is a high likelihood that the Cardinals will add a starting pitcher via free agency. There are several big names available, including David Price, Zack Greinke, and Jordan Zimmermann, and the Cardinals have the money to sign one of these pitchers.

Free agent help. We at Bless You Boys put our collective minds together and decided to provide the club with some free free agent help. So we took a vote, and former Nationals starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann won in a runaway election among our staff members. But we also addressed the team's other needs, with left fielder Alex Gordon finishing second and relief pitcher Darren O'Day in third on our...

Red Sox free agent targets: Jordan Zimmermann

With the Red Sox in need of an ace, Jordan Zimmermann might be a surprisingly under-the-radar buy in an offseason full of ridiculous names. But there's reason to be skeptical after a less-than-spectacular 2015. I came here today expecting to tell you that Jordan Zimmermann was Boston's best bet for a free agent ace this offseason. In a market dominated by David Price and Johnny Cueto, Zimmermann seemed like the guy who might get lost in the shuffle. The James Shields to Price and Cueto's Scherzer and Lester, just a few years younger. No, Zimmermann is not going to wind up signing for $75...

Jordan Zimmermann could return the Detroit Tigers' rotation to prominence

For five years, Jordan Zimmermann has been one of the better starting pitchers in the game. After a down year, he may be a bargain compared to other high-end starting pitchers in free agency. The Detroit Tigers' pitching staff is clearly general manager Al Avila's main priority this offseason. Avila has stated his goals are to acquire one front-end starter, and a lesser option for the back of the starting rotation. While discussion around the Tigers' fan base and media have identified numerous other ways to potentially strengthen the roster for the 2016 campaign, it is Avila's opinion that...
