they stayed the course by not trading away youth for a quick fix today...but no gm who wants to keep his job is going to dismantle a first place (at the time) team.
i agree 10000%. i think the game plan going into the year was to have another fire sale and deal all the soon to be free agents for more prospects and picks, then let more kids get experience down the stretch. but with the team in 1st we couldn't do this...luckily they just stood pat and didn't go the opposite direction and traded kids to help the playoffs.
