Theo says he's wanting to make a decision by early November...he knows who he wants.

I am on board with what Theoyer is doing. They are going about things the right way. They are will go after under the radar free agents to support the young talent as opposed to having the young guys support the big names and huge contracts. The way MLB is set up, you have to have star young talent and build around it. You can't just sign a bunch of allstars ala the Angels and Dodgers.
