gotten lucky with some shrewd acquisitions over the winter in hammel and Chen.
It's great that we have a winning record at this point in the season and it's a lot of fun
to watch but our future isn't now, it's 13, 14, and 15. Trading any key prospects for
a few extra wins this season is being pennywise pound foolish.
I agree with you both that in the long run, there is really nothing out there that even guarantees you getting to the playoffs. Its not like you are 5 games in the playoff group and simply trying to hold on. You are now on the outside looking in and have to make up ground to get in, and as Jordan said on the original post, getting into the 2nd wild card spot buys you a one game playin date with Jared Weaver.
Let's just say thanks for the 2012 season. Admit it has been better than we all thought it would be, wait for September call ups to see if LJ, X and Mahoney are really ready to be in the discussion for 2013, and start dreaming about off season free agent blogging about signing David Wright to play 3B.
