If they were a 85-win team last year and their pitching looked like it was "obviously" going to be better, then I could see wanting to "upgrade" the Left Field position with a "big" signing.
But, to consider going after someone who may or may not do 10% better than what we already have seems like unnecessary spending. I'd rather they use the money to lower ticket prices.
Yes. I like some of the young guys they have too. I was just responding to people who like Tejada offensively, but think his defense is inadequate at SS. I don't agree with you, though, that this team can't contend this year. If they add a very good bat..I think they could be in it. I guess I just believe that they ought to strive to put their best team on the field every year.
