On the Plus side...



Maybe NOW ownership will decide doing nothing is a bad idea, and get us what we desperately need. Pitching.

I know this is going to sound complainey, but I've been a huge fan of getting pitching all offseason. I wanted to keep Erik Bedard. I wanted to sign Edwin Jackson.... even if it was an overpay. I wanted to sign Oswalt, trade for a starter, anything.

I wanted to get us that legit starter at the back of the rotation so we could put Bard where he truly belongs. The bullpen. I know it's a REALLY small sample, but I have no confidence in Aceves as the closer, and I have less confidence in Melancon than I did when we acquired him, which is low.

If we act now, and get SOMETHING (I'm pretty sure we could get something, somewhere.) we could move Bard to the closer role, hand Ace the set up role, and use Melancon in the 7th like he's supposed to be used.
