The team has Gausman, Bundy, Wright and Rodriguez in it's minor leagues. All of whom look promising. The team seems to be in more capable hands with Douquette than it did with McPhail. I just do not think the payoff will be immediate.
Any thinking that resembles buy now and mortgage your future seems amiss. The team just needs more success with the draft, the international market, minor league and major league free agents. I do not think big name signings are needed. Diligence finding talent at an affordable price is.
So far with the winter meetings and free-agency I am disappointed as well. I just don't think the sky is falling.
