They weren't an all-star closer away from contending, because Weathers wasn't that bad.
Now, let's talk Casey, Larkin, Milton, Lincoln...
But my point is that while you may believe Dunn and Arroyo were good signings, many people think they weren't no matter how well they have performed. If they sign Votto to a long term deal, rest assured there will be those that will say that someone like Alonso could give the same production for a lower cost.
