Orange and Black power arms

Andrew Baggarly reports that the Giants appear to have a TON of great young arms besides Kyle Crick and Heath Hembree...there's Clayton Blackburn, Chris Stratton, Kyle Blach, Edwin Escobar, Adalberto Mejia.... 

At least, that's who other teams are asking about. 

No wonder there's speculation that Clayton Kershaw may get a deal in the $300 million arena. Still, there's always a chance that today's hot prospect is tomorrow's Jonathan Sanchez. What I mean by that is MLB pitching is a punishing gig. Just ask Roy Halladay, who retired today at age 36.

Sanchez had one great year in 2010 with a 13-9 record and a WAR of 3.7. He wound up with his career in tatters and a 3.4 WAR after 7 seasons. He got cut by the Pirates last May after going 0-3 and hasn't played in the bigs since then.
