I agree.

If there's anything I think the current ownership has done right over their tenure is to not sink too much money long term into pitchers. They've been famously been burnt a couple times and I think they've learned their lesson. Pitchers, while if they stay healthy can be a great deal if you invest long term early. But if they break down they can really hamstring your franchise for a long, long time.
