Wayne cashed in two of his most valeued trading chips in an act of desperation. Will that move ever pay off? Time will tell, looks bad now.
Wayne Kriviski and Jerry Narron are on the same page in the recognition and evaluation of talent and skill sets. That kinda worries me.
Last season was pretty volatile. An early good start made us contenders and it changed the sensibilities of the front office.
I have a feeling that Wayne will turn over cards relentlessly, looking for incremental improvement whenever possible.
The debate has raged on ad infinitum since "the trade".
Let's see what he can do this off season.
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
~ Mark Twain
While Kearns/Lopez/Dunn may have lost offense, its not like we just arent playing guys in their spots. Players will be playing in their positions and will offset some of the loss. Odds that we can replace all that offense? Not good. Odds that we will need to? Not good either. If we can upgrade defense of Dunn and Lopez, that is a large swing in runs right there. If we get some pitching back for Dunn that is decent, there is another swing in runs. Then you just add in what the guy who replaces him brings and the run offset is not as difficult to overcome.
Let me echo paulrichjr's sentiment about being disturbed by John Allen's liking of Krivsky.
Bad mojo. Double bad.
