I knew about the Upton-Olsen trade, but I never really thought it would get done. I just wish that we could get a top end starter instead of all these low-end guys who really should be 3-5 starters at best. Because I'm pretty sure we can all agree that Shields, Fossum, and Corcoran are not 2nd or 3rd ((maybe)) starters.
I don't mind giving up some of our prospects for a veteran starter because our entire team is prospects. CC still has 15 years left in the tank and hes our most seasoned vet ((other than wigginton)) and some of our relievers. I truley think we could be a decent team with some better pitching, and truthfully haven't we been waiting for this team to develop for a decade now.
All we are doing imo is taking all of the minor league prospects that we have, making them good, and then trading them for old players who plain and simple can't match up to other teams.
I'm just getting frustrated with the lack of productivity ever since the start of the team. Just once I would like to see us overachieve. I was so happy the first half of last year when we were doing decently and then it just went downhill from there.
Wasn't 2006 supposed to be a breakout year a few years back. You know I just hope we're right about 2008-2009.
