Adley will help to improve the team some, but he cannot create talent where there is pitifully little. Now with all the high draft choices and the horrible records of the past few years, of course one would expect to see some improvement in W/L. But as my 95 year Grandmother always said before she passed on, YOU CANNOT MAKE A SILK PURSE OUT OF A SOWS EAR. Same applies to baseball talent. You cannot come up with enough talent in the short term, and maybe a little beyond, to overcome all the sins of the previous number of years.

I remember listening to a radio interview with Isaiah Thomas, and it was a pretty extensive interview, five or six minutes or so, and almost every other sentence, Isaiah Thomas said, “I’m one of the best of all time.”
Yeah yeah we get it. But if you’re one of the best of all time, you don’t need to constantly be reminding us.
