BTW, GOYA welcome to the party.
I guess I should say what I voted. I gave Walt a D.
Manuel is a serviceable MLB pitcher and we got a guy only with potential and no current production. Hairston is an average guy and not a big deal. But Chase Weems looks like the bag the balls came in. I don't care where he was drafted, I don't see him getting anything done. I like Rolen a lot. EE and Roenicke I have no problem with. Zach Stewart I have a big problem with. Our SP is failing fast and we need all the chances we can get to have a solid rotation guy move up. Now it looks like Wood or nothing for a while. (Maybe Leake, but probably not soon).
So the only really good thing Walt did was marred by acheiving it by trading something we need. That's a D.
