Let's say DOB lands someone like Millwood and signs Jimenez. What would you give him for a grade for the offseason?
I'd give him a pretty good grade in that case.
Signing Jimmeniz was good, but that should be a given. (Anyone with common sense would've done that).
Right now, it's hard for me to give him a grade. I really like that he's brought in the pitching. I have high hopes for Ortiz, but some posters here have made some excellent points about the risk of that trade.
I do like that he's made a decent effort to improve the pitching though. Last year, I wasn't sure he even had a pulse.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
