There's nothing wrong with targeting good defense. In order to obtain good defensive players you must first have the ability to identify good defensive players. On the day Willy Taveras signed both Walt and Dusty described him as an excellent defensive CFer.
Excuse me for being concerned about Walt and Dusty's talent evaluation skills.
