Disagree. Here's the wildcard - Arroyo, who probably hates Cincinnati with a passion, goes lights out. Flip him for his overvalue come trade deadline.
And no one wants to think that WMP, hard worker and all, could always go Dave Kingman on you. WMP is a DH - he's in the right league. We'll see him every three years or so.
Remember we are an organization that is at least a decade behind in a talent pool. Ain't nobody gonna help us, unless we help ourselves. I'm going to give WayneK some slack with the draft & with Castellini's money.
