Agree to disagree.
His FB has been on the decline, his strikeouts went way down last season despite more innings, he struggles in every must-win situation for the last 3 years, etc. Even IF you think he's going to "rebound", he's still a #2 starter. You don't "build around" #2 starters.
This team is still mediocre next season. If you get a chance to add a top 3 MLB prospect for a (best case scenario) #2/3 starter, you do it. You build for 2014 and beyond. I don't even think it's all that close. I'd add to it if I had to.
