The top three starting pitchers left on the free agent market are finding it tough going. And Buster Olney reports that Edwin Jackson, Hiroki Kuroda and Roy Oswalt have all lowered their asking price:
The asking prices have come down significantly for veteran FA starters: Oswalt (said to be at $8m), Kuroda (10-11m), Edwin Jackson.
I am finding it rather hard to believe that someone — hello Yankees! — wouldn’t jump at either Oswalt or Kuroda on a one-year deal at those rates. But I suppose teams realize that these three are basically killing each other on the market, and so long as no one is getting serious attention from another team, they’re content to wait it out.
