Default Jason Schmidt: What would you give up?

Would you give up McCarthy, Anderson, and a reliever to get him? Is he worth it?

He would make the Sox rotation awful tough.

Jason Schmidt is worthy of a mention when it comes to the title of "best pitcher in MLB." Unfortunately, he's injury prone on Cub-like levels.

I'd consider giving up McCarthy and Anderson in a slam-dunk deal where we get a young, proven pitcher like a Santana or a Willis. But an injury prone pitcher who's probably seen their better days? Well, we're seeing how that philosophy has worked for the Yankees right now...and it's no good.

I really don't know enough about him. I don't pay much attention to the inferior National League, much less the NL West. However, just by looking at his stats, he seems like monster, although he's spent some time on the DL this year.

If KW felt that Schmidt would be the final piece for a World Series run, then I'd say go for it.

Seems like too much to give up for someone so injury prone, if they could swing a deal with Sweeney or Anderson and some other lesser players to get him I would bite. But then again I dont know Schmidt's contract status. ANyone know what he is getting paid this year and how many years he has left on his current deal?

It looks to me that Jason Schmidt is pitching hurt. His velocity is down and way too inconsistant as of late. Plus, I don't like NL pitchers coming to the AL mid-year. I think Schmidt is way too much of a risk at this point to give up prospects like those.

Speaking of Schmidt's velocity being down, I know Gain'ts fans who have suggested he was a 'roider. Just something to think about.

I had him on my fantasy team the past 2 years and he has been dominant...is he really injury prone or his this his first year battling with it....I'd love to have him, bit we don't need a #1....if Duque is still hurting we should get a solid #3 guy to hold us over...if you make the palyoffs you don't use a 5 man rotation anyways

We would probably have to pay for his buyout next year, so I want no part of him because he would hurt us retaining Frank or Paulie. Plus, it's not like he guarantees us a Wolrd Series. If we make a move for a starting pitcher, he better be an unquestionable ace.


The only starting pitcher i would give up prospects for is Roger Clemens. Other than that, I am not buying what the sellers are selling.

Would that explain his massive head?

I wouldn't shed a tear if KW dumped McCarthy and/or Anderson for a monster bat or top of the rotation starter, but Jason Schmidt is about as sturdy as a toothpick. Not worth a premier quality prospect.

Default Jason Schmidt

There are talks that the giants may want to get rid of Jason Schmidt and his big contract, I realize he has had his struggles this year but would anyone else like to see Kenny Williams try and get Schmidt I realize we have a full pitching staff and we got Brandon in the minors but I sure as hell wouldn't mind having schmidt in the sox staff

Pass. Schmidt is struggling because of health problems. That's a deal-breaker for me.
