Re: Lidle traded
DanO doesn't have much to hang his hat on to this point. Last years draft, even with the blowup of Wagner, still is looking good with the pitching of Pauly and Gardner. I think DanO's first draft, heavy on HS pitchers is highly questionable for the future.
His major trade is dealing away Reitsma and his major free agent acquisition was Lidle. Rather unimpressive so far.
He can salvage it by clearing some payroll(does he have the cajones to trade Casey) in the fofseason and locking Dunn up for 4-5 years.
Personally I am not hopeful, so prove me wrong DanO.
