Its not that I wouldn't value the opportunity to go to the playoffs. I'd love that at this point. But my job isn't to build a team. Though I like to think I could run a team... I don't.
If I were building a team... given the choice between holding onto a piece of the team that might squeek me into the playoffs if plan A didn't work... or I had the opportunity to add a player to plan A for the next several years... I'm going to add that player every time.
Now if I thought my backup might become my starter... or my team was good enough that I could win consistently with my backup.... my thinking would be different... but he won't be here after 09 (thanks for the correction)...
We've got a young team, and while winning is important... if you have a chance to build for the future... and not take away from PLAN A... then that's what you've got to do.
