How about Pedro Astacio? Word is he's beasting down in the Dominican Leagues. We should take a look at him. And soon, too, because I hear he's close to a minor league with the Red Sox. What would he do there? Be their seventh starter? Ridiculous. We should offer him a minor league deal too. Pencil him in as our fifth starter and see how he does. There are a lot of worse options I can think of (Duckworth, Redding...). Sign this guy up.

i've supported signing him for some time now. if he's healthy, he's the best low money FA available this winter. health is a big concern, but i'd give him an NRI and take a flier that he outperforms redding/hernandez/munro/wtfever. if he does, then i'm happy to have the guys he beats out available if oswalt or pettitte get injured or if backe implodes in a full season of IP.
