Washed-up 4-A bums who we could probably get cheap and might be better than Kyle Davies

The following are Triple-A starting pitchers this season who are not prospects; they're all 27 and over and have been in at least two organizations. Most of them have sucked during short callups at one time or another to the major leagues. A couple of them have already done time with the Royals. They are the definition of replacement level. Let's use one of them to replace Kyle Davies. Well, we're not going to get out of this starting rotation mess unless we do something, so let's fling a bucket of crap at the wall and see if any of it sticks. Who knows, one of them might pull a Felipe Paulino. Pick up a couple of these guys cheap and see what happens. It can't be worse than what we have now. Pacific Coast League: Dana Eveland, b. 1983, Dodgers, 105 IP, 3.77 ERA, 4.09 FIP Andrew Kown, b. 1982, Giants, 102 IP, 4.15 ERA, 3.95 FIP Sam Narron, b. 1981, Brewers, 101 IP, 3.83 ERA, 4.36 FIP Matt Yourkin, b. 1981, Giants, 99.2 IP, 4.70 ERA, 4.14 FIP Eulogio de la Cruz, b. 1984, Brewers, 97.2 IP, 4.42 ERA, 4.23 FIP Shane Loux, b. 1979, Giants, 121 IP, 4.32 ERA, 4.32 FIP International League: Dontrelle Willis, b. 1982, Reds, 75.1 IP, 2.63 ERA, 3.12 FIP Chad Reineke, b. 1982, Reds, 85.1 IP, 3.16 ERA, 4.41 FIP Brian Bass, b. 1982, Phillies, 103.1 IP, 4.09 ERA, 4.47 FIP Brian Burres, b. 1981, Pirates, 96.2 IP, 4.09 ERA, 4.91 FIP J.D, Martin, b. 1983, Nationals, 73.2 IP, 4.28 ERA, 4.91 FIP Brandon Duckworth and Chris George are also available, but they're pitching lousy even in Triple-A.
