Hey everyone, this is my first post... so here goes. Last year was one of the most painful seasons to watch in a long time. It seemed like they found a way to lose every night, it was a total team effort. There were only a couple of guys that had decent years. That being said, we finished in third place without Kendry for about four months and playing really bad baseball we finished 11 games behind the team that went to the World Series. I think just having Kendry the entire year would have added one more win a week, but I could be wrong. I think my math might be off we would have won the division by one game. I for one am very thrilled the Angels did not pay that much for Crawford. Beltre falls into that same catagory. Don't overpay! My gut says he's another GMJ contract waiting to happen. There is a trade out there that makes sense. Whether it's Beltran, Fielder, or signing a less expensive FA - the main thing is we need to get back to delveloping players and letting them play. In my humble opinion we leave guys too long in the minors. Sometimes, that's not such a great idea. It's been great reading your idea's. Thank you, keep it up.
