It amazes me how FA contracts from the past 10 years still haunt this team, along with the 2003 draft
I don't know if the powers that be have a grasp on the overall picture. They want to fill holes in the roster by drafting support players, but those players take years to develop; So by the time your supporting cast is ready, your group of stars are on the wrong side of 30 and are being dangled as trade bait or are in jeopardy of being bought out.
I don't think it's a coincidence that our most successful season in years came when we were comprised primarily of young, home-grown players. The problem was the timing and that we had developed too many tractors and not enough Ferrari's.
