    Alderson deserves some criticism for that.
    He does, and of his 3 multi-year deals, the Frankie Frank deal hasn't worked out so far. But then again that was for 12 million.

    You could also give him crap for not trying to trade Capuano at last year's trading deadline, but seriously who were we going to get.

    THIS.

    It's not about whether Duda or FMart will ever turn out to be the real deal. It's why they wanted C and B over F-Mart.

    Apparently mediocre major leaguers are more important to this organization than minor leaguers with upsides.

    FoC, it's because choices C and D were APHs.

    APHs are the one consistent theme of this organization now.

    But are these APHs PBTB?

    That's a good question.

    APHs by their very definition are PsBTB.

    Sometimes you need to ask a Bishop for clarification.
