Re: Winter Meetings
Its much easier in this game to grow your own homegrown offensive/positional talent than your own pitching talent. This organization is the epitome of proof of that. And you can find that positional talent relatively easily on the FA market or through trades. Much more difficult for the Reds market to do that with pitching.
I don't know if Krivsky's philosophy is the answer, but something in this organization's direction needs to be changed. And that might mean sending out some of the offense in the short term if it means we can collect pitching...
In regards to the Marlin's trading Olsen.. he's top of the rotation stuff, I dont see that happening.. Let alone taking on Dunn's sizeable contract.
