I'm less than impressed with adding Cano and Diaz to a 4th place team since it gut our farm and we have to pay $100 million of the $120 million remaining on Cano's contract. I'll withhold further judgement to see what other moves are made. But going half way in doesn't cut it when we literally have a two year window with our starting pitchers and Cano (at his age).
Still not to impressed with the acquisitions this offseason. They've got a bunch of guys at the age in which most players start to fall off a cliff (Cano and Lowrie). Then they've got these AAAA guys like Broxton and JD Davis. They've also traded away 9 out of their top 30 prospects. Not sure they've done enough to leapfrog three teams. I'm afraid they've mortgaged the future for a run this year, that's still unlikely to happen IMO.
beeradimusprime: More concerned with Oshae thinking about leaving to play for pay (no chance it's the NBA) and what Joe Girard III will bring to the court from the small high school program

deano: I agree about Oshae. If he leave it's for personal reasons that I will not share here. Agree about JG III to, hopefully he will get used to the speed of the game next year especially come ACC play.

walsh: I wish our fans would stop being so critical of Newton.
The kids Dallas EYBL numbers weren't eye-popping, but they didn't suck either

JazzNC: I don't think fans are being overly critical of Newton (at least on this site), but even I have voiced concern that ALL of our bigs are finesse guys and their weight and strength are concerns. That's my biggest gripe.

downhere67: I am the first guy to loose his mind watching our team sometimes. However, what JB has built over his gig her is undebateble. I get that we do not get the top 20 guys very often but with the roumes around Kal and proven about Kansas and then that fucker

deano: Agree downhere67, the game to me has passed JB at times and he's not willing to adjust, especially on offense. A lot of coach's are using his age and the zone against us when it comes to recruiting too. IT sucks we can not a quality big man.

walsh: i think we're going to see a lot better offense this season. we haven't had this many scoring and ball-handling options in a few seasons. i think we will shock people this year. 22 games is def viable.

deano: walsh, you care to rephrase your shoutout . This team stinks and it starts with the coach. Please retire JB.
