Stop the madness...stop signing piece of crap free agents...and BUILD this team...
Exactly. You can get a good veteran pitcher or two without trading away guys like Jack Wilson. It's called spending a little bit more than the freaking bare minimum just so you can make a few extra bucks, something that ownership STILL hasn't figured out to this day. Talent always goes where the money is, and if management opens up their wallets more, they would come - trust me on that. Yes, I want to win. But I don't want to mortgage the future or trade away talented players either, especially young players like Jack who is just entering the prime of his career.
