MacT made all the right small moves today. The problem is that this team is not just small moves away from being a playoff contender. We desperately NEED the right big pieces. The kids are not enough. MacT better ****ing get it done. He doesn't get the benefit of the doubt, he doesn't get an extra year.
lol, I just said almost exactly this before reading your post.

This team HAS to compete this year and imo has to be a playoff club. To have another year of abject failure is going to do more to demoralize the club, our young core, and have yet another platoon of players, a new generation, "conditioned to losing".
