Yikes. That was a rant.Llet's take a look at some categories other than SB's that this team will exceed in:
AVG - HITS - trips - runs - low SO's, OBP
With playes like Rios, Holiday, Jones,and Mauer I'll be able to hang in RBI's .
So i'm giving up HR's and SLG, power hitters are great but high strikeouts, low averages, and mid-season slumps are a killer.
What league are you in where Victorino is on the WW - you better check the ranks this year.
Better options than Rios in the 5th round!?!? You really are in 2007 mode.
Sheets was a gamble - if he's healthy - big payout.
Myers was not demoted to the bullpen, he had to go cause his team had no one to close. His arm was a huge reason for the NL East pennant.
There are holds, along with K/9 and SO's - which Broxton kills it in. Why bother with average closers who will only get you SV's but will kill your WHIP, ERA, and L's.
