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.
Yup

Yup

If they dont get more help, this team is putting all their chips on banking that the kids all make that step forward together. Which would be funny if it happened, because MacT would look like a genius savior.
