Re: I am wondering........
Well I finally waded through your stream of consciousness Primal Scream. So the whole baseball world has gone on a crazy feeding frenzy and we're expecting the Reds to spew dollars left and right on guys who have flaws and warts? No, they haven't set the world on fire with their signings thus far, but it's a doggone long office season. How does it make the team better if a player is signed now or signed later?
Of those players who have signed elsewhere, most have signed for significantly higher dollars and many of them have some question marks around them. People here have repeatedly said that several of the signings are nothing significant, they're not all the eggs in the basket. Some of these players won't even make the team.
We have become a "do it now" fan base and we have no taste for the patience the process takes. People talk about years past and that was the old regime (or even two back). This is still Cast's and WK's first year, for heaven's sake.
Maybe everybody needs to calm down. Afterall, it's only a game, folks.
