What happens if we DO go out and lose 100 games. Or even 90 games. What young stars are we going to sign with a record like that? What young stars are we going to trade for with a bereft minor league system? Things could get bleak in a heartbeat. I don't want to go back to being horrible every year.
Who the **** points at Dayan and Flowers as potential superstar building blocks? You're arguing against people that simply don't exist, man.
