Give it a rest.
I care too much about this team to wreck it like that. Throwing money at a problem has RARELY ever been the solution and it would only make the problem worse here.
Give what a rest?? A desire to see a winner here?? Continuation of 14 years of losing?? You have a Farm System that is several years away from producing top talent. So are we to sit around and wait for another rebuild to brings us to the promised land??? How many rebuilds do you want to sit through??? No my friend, time to spend some money and give the fan base the idea you are trying to win for the first time in ages
You ask give what a rest? Spending just for the sake of attempting to get a winning record in 2012 or 2013 and wasting funds that would be better used in 2014 and on into the future needs to be rethought because throwing money (Vlad, Izzy, Wiggy, Miggy, ...ETC) has not worked the last 14 years and will not now IMO.
You and everyone else desires a winner but how we get there is how fans differ. Thinking that Buck/Dan/Sir Pete don't want to win is being dishonest with ones self.
Yes it was 14 years but not with the current management team and they should have free reign to do as they see fit to get that winning record. If it is to have the market (Free Agents) play out and not sign the large contract players, then as fans we can complain but that is as it will be.
