I agree we need to upgrade hitting. But I don't think it's necessary NOW. I feel it would be better to let the season get under way & see how everyone is doing.
Does Phillips bounce back from the injury he never seemed to get over last year?
Does Ludwick hold up? Does Frazier explode? Does Meso find a way to hit RHP?
Waiting till the season gets under way always you to see exactly where the holes are THIS year.
Then you can make a better informed decision. It doesn't help much if you use your trade bait now on a guy that gets injured early or has a major down year. After you fire your bullets to get that guy, then what do you do when he doesn't work out the way you thought he would & you've already used your best trade pieces?
I don't think Walt needs to be in a hurry, & quite frankly I don't think he is. We have plenty of time to make our move. He just needs to make sure when he does that it's a good one. And I'm confident he will.
