And when Chatwood signed it made Cobb seem redundant in that they are both "4s". I never thought it could be a setup for Darvish. I figured the TOR starter to replace Arietta would come by trade. Just awesome.
To be fair, he said it right in front of Darvish. Not a whole lot of alternatives there. "Well, no, of course we didn't think he was worth what he was asking at the beginning of the offseason. I mean, did you see the World Series? But once he lowered himself to basically John Lackey money...yeah sure, then we decided to start thinking about him."
