I know what you are saying but you are signing players and trading for players based on future performance not past performance. You're getting paid over a million dollars to create and develop a team that wins; it's a 24/7 job. I cannot give out a grade based on reports I see and looking at stats on players I have never seen in person (ie: Gillaspie). I'll wait to see how they perform to give out a grade.
