If we win the division and have a first round exit, I am good with that considering all that has gone on and I would call that a saved season
What is your definition of "saving" this season? We win the division and then get bulldozed in the first round, that's a "saved" season?
I know you're the king of giving up on players, but you can't give up on Ball or Jackson. Well a normal person can't. There's way too much potential and only time will tell. And that time period is not within the next week or the next month.
I'm not even complaining about the moves we made, my whole point is no one can close the book on those deals. not for many more years, and several people here are trying to do that already.
I hope we at least compete in the first round but a division title is a good season. Some cities would kill for a division title - just ask Mariners or Orioles fans - we really do have it good for the most part
I am not pulling any punches, I want to win now and this has been a good run
I will not lose sleep over every low A ball prospect to make the team better and as for Jackson well, I am not the only non believer. Its not like he is lights out down in Miami
Most fans want to win now and will gladly sacrifice a guy like Ball who is struggling in A+ ball for immediate help to compete now and if he does develop 3 yrs from now more power to him. I do not wish Ball any ill will
I understand your line of thinking, it's in line with the way most people think.
On the other hand, you have zero grasp of my point, which is simply you can't just write off and close the book on any young player who has shown potential. You are able to acknowledge they may get it someday, and yet you continue to write off all prospects at one point or another. Which is not surprising because you've also thrown every successful player down the elevator shaft at some point.
