Now, I know the roster is always a moving target. But I just find it amazing that there has been so much change in one season (especially for a contending team). It's wild. Seven new pitchers as of right now? Wow! Yes, some of it's due to injuries but have you ever seen such a complete roster makeover during the course of a season when the team has been in contention vitually from day one? Don't get me wrong...I'm all for it. I want to win and I want to win now...it's just very interesting to me.

I love it, for the first time in a long long time, we have the Front Office holding players accountable for their actions on the field. Keeps them on their toes.
