I was happy with the trades at the time, but now I wish Alex would have stuck to his original plan and built through the draft and player development. We would have been better off trading Bautista and EE for prospects. It would have taken a long time to rebuild this thing properly (this isn't the nba) but we were more than half way there.

Now we are screwed with a maxed-out budget and very few prospects to use in acquisition of starting pitching and filling our other holes. This team is not a real contender (and is far from it). And now if AA can't pull a miracle in the next 2 years we will be back at square one with an old, overpaid team and a depleted farm system.
