I would disagree. I'm not interested in running a team out there and not expecting to win. We'll have time to look at players like Dickerson and Hanigan to see if they have value for 2009, but the club better be going out there to win as often as they can. While they may look like they're just playing out the string, I'd like to see the team's feet held to the fire to win, period.
