I don't want another year of tryouts.
Welcome to the board.
So you disagree that we should keep with our young players and that instead we should "contend" by going with veterans, but you point out that Detroit, Tampa, and Anaheim have won with youth. I don't get your point. If we stay with Dickerson, Bruce, Volquez, Cueto, etc. wouldn't that be similar to what Tampa is doing right now.
