I've been saying all along that this isn't a championship team.
I would have been strategically selling to get the right pieces to build a much better team for next season.
I'd see what we could get for Patton this winter and allow Matusz, Britton, Pettit, Belfiore, and Chris Jones to fight it out for the two LH bullpen spots next spring.

This is a team that could get to the ALDS and win two games by an average score of 12 - 4 and lose the other three by an average score of 4 - 2. WE....CAN'T....MANUFACTURE....RUNS!
We've traded all of our expendable prospects that other teams would be willing to give up value for. Anything we trade now will substantially impact on our future.
