"It's amazing that 29 other GMs, all of whom face the exact same roster limitations as Alderson and many of them with more minor league talent to protect, manage to add players to their teams. They must be wizards."

Thank you, and quite bump worthy. These people must stay awake looking for excuses for the FO. "We have to protect our existing scrubs" is a new one. We'll just put it next to "there's no one out there", "it's just the bullpen", "Sandy is patient", "can you believe the market", "FMart has 6 tools".. etc.

See the key term there is "intelligent person" and well just look at what we are talking about.

Cross dressing stock brokers and Princeton educted (by their own account) CEO's.

Wait so if a player wins in Arbitation the team can still cut them? Are you sure about that? If Parnell won say 2 Mill the mets could just cut him before ST and owe him nothing?

Your focus on spelling shows you really aren't an ideas guy.

"Your focus on spelling shows you really aren't an ideas guy. "

But what does your lack of focus on spelling show?

"Notice the lack of answers from most? Tells me they don't take enough into consideration when forming opinions."

There's enough things to lay on the FO (well, the owners really) that people don't need to make stuff up, or just blindly blame them for doing something (or not doing something) where there was a perfectly valid reason.

It's like last season during a game when TC would put a pitcher in, and people would come up here SCREAMING why didn't he put in some other guy; then someone would point out that the "other guy" wasn't available.

Do you want me to name at least half a dozen players on the 40 man roster I wouldn't bat an eye about being lost?

How does every other GM in baseball manage to work within roster limitations to improve the team, but with far less talent it's a problem for us?

I don't think EVERY other GM in baseball manages their roster limitations and IMPROVES their team.
