I remember the outrage when we traded a minor league pitcher with good numbers (Buddy Carlyle) for Kroon. I trust Walt to sort out the keepers in the minor leagues. Other than the Harden-Mulder deal, he's proven to be pretty good at that.
If we're stuck with Arroyo, Cordero and Harang next year, might as well try to piece together a starting 8 and do something.
Once again, I am thrilled to see EdE get "booted" out of town.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
