Re: Why do you folks think we're THAT far away, we need THAT much to compete etc...
You are forgetting that our supporting cast of the past were very good role players though and call me drunk, but those are almost as hard to get as any all-star. Why do I say this? Our roster is not up to par with most teams.
We have few guys with trade value and only a few options we can do with those pieces as well.
