If you call losing in the 2nd round a run. Seriously folks, I am not interested in getting lucky or a wing and a prayer, or any other BS.

Let's just stay on the current path to success and be patient and be contenders for 5-10 years in a row in 2 or 3 years. Wouldn't that be better?

If Doughty and Johnson had a little more experience I might be more willing to accept this line of reasoning. I am fine with acquiring Hemsky if the cost is something like Martinez/Hickey, Moller, and a 2nd round pick. More than that and the price gets too rich for me.
