Video: Olney on starting pitching market
May, 18, 2011
In his video blog, Buster Olney discusses the starting pitching issues of the Red Sox and Yankees and talks about what the pitching market might look like. He says that early speculation is that the starting pitching trade market is going to be weak. A few names Olney mentions that could be available are Paul Maholm (Pirates) and Aaron Harang (Padres). But he wonders if the Red Sox would have questions about them pitching in the AL East.
Another name mentioned is Francisco Liriano, but Olney again wonders if there would be questions about how comfortable he would be in a market like Boston or New York.
