We don't have a shutdown guy and we need one badly. That's where we need a gap fix. We could've traded away a smaller forward to do this (as we have them in abundance) and then gone after a guy like Morrow as another stopgap for Maccarron. Or alternatively, just give a shot to a kid like Leblanc.

Instead we got more of what we already had too much of.
