re: Why do people on this board think they know better than the coaching staff? - MOT
I didn't read the entire thread but is anyone tracking all of the colossally stupid suggestions made by this board that were obviously not correct and the coach was? I suspect it may be quite a bit larger than the "I was right, the coach wasn't" list. All coaches at this level make mistakes, bad ...

One situation involves free agent spending on an established major league player recovering from injury. The other involves draft spending on a player that has never played a professional inning on any level. Yes, he could turn into a top of the rotation arm, or he could bust....

[quote]I could tell you what he meant. He NEVER would have agreed to an under-slot deal in the first place. Aiken was the consensus #1 talent in the draft - why should he take under-slot?

re: Mac Marshall did not sign with the Astros; Will play for Tigers - MOT
The great thing about this class is that while it is talented and deep, we should have a solid enough nucleus that no one has to be thrown in before they are ready. Some of the pitchers will obviously play big roles early because they are so talented and we don't have much experience returning, but ...
