Meanwhile there are 3 or 4 major league caliber relievers in AAA while the team spends its money on Weathers, Rhodes and Lincoln.
Maybe one of those relievers and one of those OF brought in for depth would have been wise, but the overkill created a glut of mediocrity and no resources to pursue something good.
It's posts like this that make me wish we still had the rep system.
