Would You Believe Zero Pitchers?

Just over a week ago, I thought we had signed one good pitcher and traded for another one, and now it seems that both deals have fallen through. Aroldis Chapman is being investigated under Major League Baseball's domestic-abuse policy, and the Dodgers found something they didn't like in Hisashi Iwakuma's physical. Our deal feel apart, and today comes the news that Iwakuma has resigned with the Mariners after all.

We've also lost Zack Greinke because we were unexpectedly stingy, so this hasn't been a particularly good offseason so far. Hopefully, the three-way trade with the Reds and White Sox will pave the way for acquiring somebody like José Fernández...
