Gio Gonzalez they could be selling high, but Cahill they could of kept. Why not make an effort to actually build an offense. Its not like these guys where 7th season guys that were 28-29. They got back mostly pitchers not one impact bat. Is Norris going to start over Suzuki? One will DH? Trade Suzuki? Again my feeling is they are tearing this pitching staff not to build the farm system but to fleece taxpayers into a new stadium. Pay the money yourself Wolff.
