It's not that MadBum would be preferable to Cole or Strasburg, but he is a realistic target for a team that has an extensive history of treating free agent starters like lepers.

I have been looking through previous rosters, and unless I missed someone, it looks like the largest dollar amount that this team has ever given to a free agent starting pitcher is the $20 million Jaime Navarro contract. That is just absurd.
