Going for the #1 pick

Recommended Posts

The goal is to be good in 2023. Don't really care about squeezing out an extra 5 wins in 2020. Use any funds that would have been wasted on free agents, and use it for player development or save it for the future when the team is good.

Or just have ownership keep it.

Well yeah that too, but hopefully it's because the organization is following the Astros model.

I have seen zero evidence that their payroll is higher than their market would otherwise dictate.

Is 2023 the year we are supposed to be good again? I have not heard anything definitive until now.

Yep, it appears that even with the lowest payroll in baseball (according to Roster Resource), there's not enough money in the budget for lottery tickets like Peraza, Franco, etc.

There are still guys out there like Yolmer Sanchez, Alex Wood, etc. that they could sign. But the front office's attitude towards this year seems to be "You'll be back when we win".

Five year plans worked great for Stalin.

Plus the famous musician the J Cash for you music fans.

21 year-old SSgt J.R. Cash, of the USAF Security Service, ie NSA, based in West Germany, is reputed to be the 1st US intel person to hear word of Stalin's death in 1953

And use it for things like P3! ... for instance. Hess ain't payin' for it.

If we are still tanking and trying to lose 100 games in 2021 then he should be gone. By that point they should at least be winning 75 games
