The battle cry of too many on here is - " Wait til last year."

I think we all have our own philosophies, as should be expected. Maybe we should respect each other's differing stances a little more than we do.
[object HTMLDivElement]. I agree. Here is my problem. I said in spring training that I had a problem with the off season moves. I said that trouble was looming. Many disagreed, saying that Ben did things right and all was well. Now, it turns out that the club is struggling. But the dissenters are still insisting that they were right and I was wrong. After spring training last year, I was among the most optimistic. I did not get that same feeling this year. I have not given up on the season, as some already have. But I am not at all surprised at what has happened so far. If Ben is to get credit when things go right, he should be criticized when things go wrong. People are spinning it to suggest that this is all part of the plan for long term success. They are reminding all of our three titles. That is fine. But I am referring to this off season. Our play so far vindicates my concerns. I have no problem with others who feel differently.
