Injury, drugs, regression and just plain old, bad luck.

The last guest, I heard on a podcast, suggested that this year 2 of the rebuild is soooo bad, it may not make sense to get any FAs this Winter AND next year may not be a lot better than this year in terms of wins. And now Hahn and co. add to their list defending the delays -drug issues. At a boy Castillo!!! I guess next Spring will be month 3 according to Coop.

Hell, it might even be time to rebuild the rebuild.
Could we trade Hahn for a 5th rounder to be named later?


Regarding Presley: he is nothing to get excited about but does have 1500 major league PA and had over 250 last season when he put up ok numbers with Det. Podcast makes it sound worse

The outfield and catching situations are staggering.
