Now comes a balancing act...do we wait it out, and see if we can get better value, or do we pull the trigger? Previously, AA has said he regretted being a tad indecisive, or, not aggressive enough. I am hoping he nabs his guy this time, whoever that may be. Seeing Sanchez pitch in the playoffs was impressive...but how will he play in the AL east?
Can some of the stat geeks predict this?
Impossible to "predict". What we can do is look at trends, and the fact remains there simply isn't enough data to reach a reasonable conclusion. He's pitched against the Rays 3 times, Yankees twice, Boston once, Baltimore once. Going by his career body of work against the AL would be more logical. Like most pitchers who shift from the NL to the AL, there's some growing pains, but he has shown vast improvement towards the end of the season.
