No, you guys think that because we never hear the inside details of our FO's plans and how the FA system has a million moving, fluid parts to it, then it must mean the FO are boobs.
Seriously, once again you're proving my point: Fans don't know what goes on in a FO leading up to the FA period and even during the FA period.
Just because something doesn't go the way you think it should go, it doesn't mean the FO screwed the pooch.
To you, the FO gets players by blind luck and misses out on the player they really wanted. Sure, our primary target was Aso but there was a Plan B and the FO switched gears. Still have to give credit to the FO for not being stubborn like the HC has proven to be his whole time here. That's why Rick > Gary...one guy has ability to adjust, the other doesn't.
