Big crowd, but the trading season is upon us. We hope.

I want to keep them all. Except for maybe Mayo. Injuries, not performing as expected when they get to the show. All kind of stuff can happen. Including playing multiple positions. If they can hit, you can usually get them in the lineup.

Leverage your surplus to address your weakness.

It mite be smart to sit back and wait the first part of this year.I don't want them signing some uber free-agent shortstop or outfielder when they may already have the answers in their system.In fact, I think they do. They'd get a clearer picture if how good a lot of their upper-level prospects are by leaving them in triple A till June.

This idea of needing a middle order bat just seems strange to me. Pitching, yes. They need a top starter-maybe two-and another late-inning reliever.Bring those home from the Winter Meetings and I'm good with it.

We did. But where do you improve? Short and second need to be fixed-and will be from in house I'm pretty sure. But another big problem is Hays and Mountcastle, too. Both were flops as far as I'm concerned.

Hays stunk after his wrist injury. Unfortunately, injuries have been a career problem.

He was unlucky. He got hit on the hand by pitches a couple of times, and got his hand spiked at first base. I think he's worth keeping.
