But I have to agree on your overall post, our way of doing things is much more effective. Even if it's not very sexy. ;o
The problem with the big spenders is just what you said, you can't afford to fix everything, so then you try to fill the holes in the draft, only to find out your huge FA contracts won't allow you to re-sign your young talent that you DO get through the draft, so you have to trade them, relase them or relase the big money guy, wich leaves you with your original holes that you started with. It's a revolving door.

Guys.... ya gotta get another hobby for this time of year. It just so happens that the offseason is also great golfing and fishing weather. Nice, quiet offseasons like this keep me from screwing up a birdie putt cuz I'm worried about what bonehead move the FO might make. It also means you can sleep in cuz you don't have to go play 18 before the game starts. Unless the tide is moving. If it is, you need to be out catching some reds or specks!!!

You sir can not be a true Texan fan. Do you not know that ulcers, headaches, fantasy trades/draft selections and free agent pick ups are our life's blood this time of year? You sound like a guy that would tie a string to his putter and fish the water hazzards while waiting on others to finish a hole. I HAVE NO TIME FOR SUCH TRIVIAL MATTERS. I have to help the Front Office make the correct decisions!! It is up to me to get this team to the play offs. I am what I am. A Texans fan. Whew, I need to lay my head down on my desk for a minute. Carry on everyone.

HAHA... You must've been playing a course I was on if you saw the old string on the club fishing trick. technically, I have to call it hunting when I play. I do a lot of that than I do actual golfing. This offseason has been very refreshing for me because we don't have THAT many glaring holes to fill and we're not signing Joe Backups to ridiculous contracts. This front office is doing a pretty OK job, unlike the former regime.
