After: Schilling, Wells, Clement, Arroyo, Wakefield
If you compare Pedro and Lowe at their peaks vs. Wells and Clement, its no contest, we declined. Speaking of decline, I would say that both Pedro and Lowe declined to different degrees in the last couple of years. If that downward trend was going to continue, why not get a place holder like Wells and a guy with some potential like Clement? Plus, in going the FA route, we still have stud prospects to dangle for Sheets if/when he becomes available next season. All in all I like it.
