Yeah. Any moves they don't make this season isn't indicative of anything other than the fact that this season, plain and simple, isn't the time to spend money.

But I'm still having a hard time wrapping my arms around the fact that in two successive seasons, we got rid of a batting title winner and a Cy Young Award winner. You can debate each of those moves individually on the micro level but you can't tell me that this team wouldn't be closer to a championship right now with RA Dickey and Jose Reyes still playing for us.
I'd also be lying to you if i said i wasn't excited at the idea that we now have d'Arnaud in our organization. But to draw an analogy, d'Arnaud is to catching what Reyes is to shortstop. The difference of course is that d'Arnaud comes much cheaper and we also got rid of another very expensive player to get him.
So that alone doesn't sit well in my stomach.
Still, it could work your way too. They could develop the kids and then bring in the expensive veterans to put us over the top.
But will they?
