Remember when folks said Krivsky was "good at contracts?" Then he promptly turned around and signed a soft-tosser entering his early 30's to a multi-year deal?
What Jocketty has done is exactly what this board has been asking for for years: don't trade away the kids; bring them along and don't sign a bunch of oldsters to big, prohibitive long-term contracts.
Yeah, it's slow going. But that's what you get when you're counting on a farm to win.
Though had Krivsky chosen the obviously correct selection Lincecum, this would be a very different team in a very different race right now.
