For the sake of those young players, I want some "win now" players in the lineup. I just don't understand how people expect a better outcome by bottom feeding for a few years. Making the playoffs is invaluable experience for these guys. It's not like our lineup is filled with "band-aid" players. Really the only short-term band-aid player is Streit...
Being a bottom feeder worked for Pittsburgh, but it's one of the reasons I don't know how Pittsburgh "fans" can sleep at night.
Had to go there.
