Exactly, and when your holes are BOTH a 1c and a PMD, addressing that through free agency will tie up waaay too much money, not to mention already paying out huge for a top line RW.

If this team is going to be competitive long term, those two things, or at the very least one of those two, has to be developed within your own system, where you can slide cheap for awhile, and then get a hometown discount.

free agency money is best spent on the periphery typically to plug in stop gaps, and when the team and timing is right, you can make a go for broke splash.
