If "coupe" means HORRIBLE DISASTER BEYOND ALL DESCRIPTION in some obscure language, then I agree.

Do I want to emulate Tampa? @*$#&%*@! A RIGHT, I DO!!! I agree you concentrate on pitching which is why I am suggesting we trade for ML ready pitching prospects and sign a ML ready OF along with an OF that should be ready for the Class of 2014. You know, grow the arms and buy the bats.

In other words, you want to continue on the same course that has given us 14 years of misery. At some point management is going to grow a brain and realize that we need to rebuild and add enough YOUNG talent to be a winner. If we keep following the "win now" idea there may NOT be a fan base left when they finally get around to doing it the right way.
