I’ll admit, I’m a pessimistic person, but I am just itching for a day when I can come onto this site and NOT gripe about how this is one of the poorest run organizations in baseball. Everyday it just seems to get worse. Thats said, here goes!
Can you guys believe how fast they went from the WS to one of the worst teams in the league?
Normally when teams go through fire sales like the Marlins did you can count the returned product.
With 3 (2 if you don’t count Francis resigning) left from the World Series you would think “wow I bet they traded all their good players for prospects”.
Umm. No. They squandered it all away.
Then you look at the team and realize they aren’t cheap players. But no one really wants any of them except Tulo and Cargo. But you trade either of them and half your fan base is distraut beyond what they currently are.
As Ag points out you’re handcuffed to some over sentimentality. To others because they simply stink. You throw darts to pick what pitchers to bring in. You think 7 #5 starters equals aces.
Geez. This organization almost has a feeling of being an expansion team, just going through the motions hoping to luck into being good rather than making the moves to get there.
