I rarely disagree with you DKH, but I think Masterson is slightly better than you give him credit for. I think he is a #3 on a playoff team. Granted, he did not pitch like it this year, but if his control is harnessed as it was in 2011 I think he could be not only an effective #3 starter for us, but an effective playoff starter as well.
Stuff wise, Masterson is a very good pitcher, maybe borderline #2. He just can't find any sort of consistency. I view Floyd the same way, he has the ability to be a top half of the rotation guy, but he can seem to put it together day in and day out. If you are really confident in your pitching coach and the rest of your coaching staff, maybe take a chance and buy somewhat low on these guys, but as is, they aren't very consistent, which was a major issue last year for this team.
