Many may disagree with this but I have to say it. IMO, the in-season trades made by Krivsky have been absolutely and positively crap. You can argue that Lohse has been a find and that's fine but the bottom line is the overall body of work regarding his in-season moves is really, really, really bad. I don't care that we didn't have to give up much or this or that. The bottom line is we didn't get quality in return and in most cases we got damaged goods. I will watch every game until the end and I won't give up hope but I am really frustrated with the same poor drafting, scouting, developing, stressing of fundamental baseball (my state championship teams in 05 and 06 were hands down more fundamentally sound), and trading for patch work veterans who if they make a dollar are overapaid. Maybe this regime will improve but I have seen enough of Krivsky to realize he has a long way to go. I continue to hold out hope that things will improve. I guess I just needed to vent. Thanks.
