Re: Cubs Acquire Rich Harden
You are the guys assuming I meant they should screw the future. You make moves, you then make other moves, you then make more moves.
The Reds idea of a move is giving Corey Patterson 3 million dollars.
My point was, IF they were going to compete it had to be soon, because JR and Dunn would for sure be gone and Harang, Arroyo and Phillips might well be gone (or hurt or whatever) by the time they could build a competitive rotation from kids.
Along the way, I also asked, as Haren, Bedard, Blanton (and yes, even Santana) went elsewhere, if they cannot compete with these moves, if they couldn't got make moves like this TO COMPETE, then they never will again.......not without a couple of really lucky drafts where they happen upon 12 or so STARS at the same time (in two years).
So, it may have failed big time, OK, but if it failed, forget about it and become a Cubbie or Yankee fan.
