They are pinching pennies and people have started to give them a free ride. You tell a lie often enough and it becomes the truth. I am not a proponent of spending money foolishly, but you must take a degree of wisdom from our baseball people for granted.
Look at what the Cardinals did with their staff last year. Not a great staff by any means, but good enough to get them to the World series. How much did Suppan, Marquis and Carpenter cost them? It can be done.
