They got good value, but did they get better? I honestly don't know, which is why I'm asking. They did gut the defense out of the center position.

Which center group is better? Which one is stronger defensively? (Two different questions entirely, I realize). Maybe group will be better than the other over time. Perhaps timing is the way to look at it. Don't think it made us better this year.

Roo-Richards-Cooter-Talbot (strong defensively)

vs

Roo-Cooter-Schenn-Talbot (not as much)
