I think someone may bite. I think he has more value than most people here believe. He's certainly declining, but he's quietly having a decent year. He's certainly declining, and he's not going to be pitching 65 innings and striking out 80 anymore, but he's a lefty with a low to mid 3 era (and he's actually doing quite well with inherited runs this season as well). He'll find a suitor.
