To me, if you're going to be lousy (and make no mistakes, this team is going to be terrible), then embrace it. They had much more talent last year than they will this year, and they finished dead last in the division. So bringing in more mid tier guys and overpaying them in terms of dollars and years does what exactly? I mean if you win 85 games or win 87, is there a marked difference in that? If you're not going to go big and swing a trade for or sign a franchise type player, then what's the point? Suck with the kids because at least the kids still have upside. What upside does a stiff like Napoli bring to the table over the next 3-5 years?
