I'm going to be in my 30's by the time the team starts winning again
Although I guess that depends if they are going to spend when the prospects make their debuts or when they are ready to kick ***. If we are waiting for guys like Baez and Soler to kick *** that's probably not until what 2017?
Some days I wish Carl Crawford caught that ball

The fact that they are still flirting with the idea of keeping Stewart baffles me, there is no reason he should be on this ball club come Spring. We will spend money this offseason and make a lot of moves but I get the feeling it won't be for any marquee players.
i wish Jim Hendry was gm still just so i wouldnt have to read kyles posts
This offseason isn't going to be the big boomer I think many are hoping. My main hope is the front office can find a few more long term assets, even if they're only in that steady MLB mold and not in the Anthony Rizzo mold.

People ask me, "Why here? Why Kentucky?", I said "Why not"? It can be done here. It will be done here. Lay the foundation. Recruit and develop. Prepare to win. Day by day. Play by play. A new era of high performance. Why Kentucky? Why not? -Mark Stoops
Even if they make it up here in 2014 I don't expect them to kick *** right away. If they do that certainly speeds it up, but I'm not expecting that. It could take a few years before it clicks for them. I just don't see where the talent is going to come from to win a WS in 4 years. I guess Theo could be extended, but I can't assume that now.
speaking of impactful talent, the d-backs are loaded with top pitching prospects. I know this has been discussed little bit here but Theo and Jed should be ringing their phone off the hook trying to acquire one of Bauer, Skaggs, Bradley this offseason.

Hendry could talk to agents but couldn't tell you how too scout or handle young talent. Your just ignorant for trying to compare Theo to hendry. That just made you look stupid.
Hes cheap why not keep him? Try and see what he can do after this surgery if we can't sign a Reynolds or youk or Ryan Roberts or drew.Originally Posted by utkcub:24154120
