Agreed. This likely isn't "our year," and the draft is too good and too deep. Free agency looks insane this summer, though I'm sure some of these folks will re-sign with their teams.

The only way I would be okay with blowing assets is if it's on someone like, say, Perry...and there's a reasonable belief that you can get him to sign, as hitting the open market on July 5 likely kills any chance of it happening.
