And that's why I hate the little bs moves being made. Take Rheal, Hatte and AGon's money and put it towards difference makers.
4-5 million doesn't seem to be too much for a potential closer. Good deal for the Angels, I wish we could pull it off.
The problem with putting all your money towards the "difference makers" is the cases like Griffey. If you put all your eggs in the same basket, and that player happens to get hurt. You are in trouble.
I wish we could have gotten Speier, but there are still some more solid arms on the market.
