Oh, they're trying to build the farm system you say?
A) Didn't deal Reyes.B) Didn't deal Wright (this one I get, but point still stands)C) Didn't even deal Hairston who was garnering interest last seasonD) Deferred contracts to future years, when we HOPE the team will be any good, instead of paying them now on what will likely be a terrible teamE) Actually thinking about re-signing Dickey, which is a complete joke.
Yeah they're trying real hard. Other then the Wheeler trade, this team has done virtually nothing to 'build up the farm system'.
Well, for starters, at least I am a fan.
Ohh man completely forgot about that.
Actually, they didn't sign their second OVERALL pick last year. Some rebuild.
Oh look who's copying and pasting again.
Yes, we know it took the Nationals 5 years... But everyone knew they were rebuilding and they acted like it.
Tell me, what has this team done to prove that it's rebuilding?
"Tell me, what has this team done to prove that it's rebuilding?"
I understand your point, but I wonder what signs were there in 2007 that the Nats were rebuilding?
THey actually finished better that year than the next few.
