I'm tired of watching the team stand pat and not doing anything somewhat risky in order to improve. So what our farm system is depleted (they weren't ranked all that high anyway). If we don't win in a few years we'll firesale and re-stock with top prospects.
Let's keep rollin' the dice Wade and see what we get!

There won't be a restocking of talent through a firesale if this doesn't work out because you won't have anything to sell.

The Astros might get something for them but they aren't going to be able to rebuild their system around what those players would bring in. They could right now.
