Will the Braves pick-up a starting pitcher this off-season?


I know our farm system is one if the best, if not the best in pitching. But we can't keep relying on rookies to finish the job even though they have saved our *** a lot. We need a starting pitcher that has proved to be consistent and reliable. C.J. Wilson will be a free agent this offseason. Hopefully the Rangers let him walk and maybe the Braves could pick him up. Picture this starting rotation....

Then there is Roy Oswalt who a lot of people will think the Phillies will let him walk. He would be a huge pick-up aswell if the Braves can land there hands on him. The only thing that worries me about Oswalt is his back problems. He even considered retirement it got so bad. But maybe he wont have problems next season. With him in the rotation, it would look something like this.....

Hanson
Jurrjens
Oswalt

Not bad if you ask me. Our pitchers have gotten so injury prone, but they are young and will likely recover nicely from their injuries. But this is just my opinion. Do you think we should go after a starting pitcher? If so, who do you think we should pick-up?
