DocJJ Posted October 21, 2015 Share Posted October 21, 2015 Is it blasphemy to say it? We likely lose Wieters, Chen, O'Day, Davis, Parra (not that he did anything anyway). We have mortgaged our future with terrible trades (Arietta for Feldman, Rodriguez for Miller, Davies for Parra). Our top draft picks have gotten hurt (Bundy, Harvey). We largely ignore foreign markets. When we do sign a player, it is a lesser caliber fringe type of guy like Urrutia/Alvarez as opposed to a bona fide star (Sano, Puig, Soler, Moncada). We have a rotation of back of rotation type guys, and no true #1 or #2 type aces. And we probably can't afford to pay for an ace in free agency. It may seem like blasphemy to say it, but I think this franchise had a brief competitive window that is shut. Toronto and NY will be good as always. Boston has stockpiled a ridiculous amount of talent and will be atop the division soon. Dumpster Diving Duquette and our miserly owner will sign a few journeymen retreads to fill out roster slots next to Schoop, Machado, and Jones, and call it a team. :angryfire: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
