Idk who is?
So you prefer to not have a strength going into next year?
We arent down on pence, we just can probably get the most in terms of prospects and we can save salary next season by not having to pay him. Thats how I feel anyways.
Going to spend it somewhere else, probably on someone 36 years old and shitty.
so much hatred for a gm of a team that's been mega-succesful over the past 5 seasons. it's like yankee fans complaining about cashman. i dont understand.
unless you just want to credit all of it to Ed Wade?
Well, yeah, that is the case. He acquired a core and a stocked farm system which allowed him to overpay and acquire Lee, Halladay, Pence, and Oswalt, but he also handed out a lot of really bad contracts and his complimentary moves have been awful.
While they've been a successful regular season team, their lack of offense was rather predictable come the post season the last 3 years.
This is also only his 4th year as GM. Not 5th. And the drafts have been pretty horrible since he took over.
2009 - WS
2010 - NLCS no offense
2011 - Could barely score in NLDS
2012 - on pace for worst record since 1997.
