I think the OF is in a good place with only a platoon partner for Dirks a need at this point.

I'm also against the pursuit of an expensive power bat at every position. I think that defense is underrated in this forum (even if it is overrated in the main forum) and OBP is as valuable as SLG (I always wished Ricky Henderson was a Tiger) and would love to see more team speed.

I would love more balance between the present and the future. I think the Prince signing will haunt this team a few years.

All in all, we're generally pulling in the same direction.


New ownership might not spend nearly the money Mr. I has spent to try winning. If and god forbid it happens he should pass before JV's contract is up we can just about kiss him goodbye.
