And that's how we have to face it.

The question is, with logic, we should be able to nab something of HIGHER quality given the way our team has surprised. BUT we have WANG and OUR IMAGE. Can we do better and IF WE CAN....WILL WE?

I don't see Briere wanting to be here based on our rep. Where we could have had Boyes last summer, we should expect a Parenteau quality guy this summer. Barely proven, but breaking out or.....someone who is a solid second liner. Nothing big or hyped.

Briere would require quite a sales job, and by that I mean second round victory.
