My question in all this is, what is the goal if not to win a chanpionship? You can't depend on prospects that may or may not pan out in the future. Trying to limit signings to 2 or 3 years nets you the kind of players we got, guys who are just not impact players.
Like I said before, either play the kids now or trade them for some stars who can win a championship. And completely revamp the SP. If anyone thinks the 5 we have now will win 70-75 games, there better be a whole lot run support.
That's incredibly shallow thinking, imo.
The first thing you need to do is to lay out the game plan. Who are the kids you want to play? The idea is not to play kids just for the sake of playing kids. The idea is to bring them up effectively and efficiently.
Take JBJ as an example. Ellsbury will leave after this year, we'll grab a pick, and JBJ takes over in CF in 2014. That's excellent planning, or at least fortuitous timing.
Which guys do you want to bring up this year that are ready?
i still would like ali to answer this question
That's what a lot of us say.
I doubt that there are any RS fans at all that don't want to develope a new generation of prospects. I'd like a new SP every year for the next five years.
But we have to be practical. It's not happening next year. The Bs are too far away. It's silly to think we can advance the clock by just wishing it happens.
