I agree we need volume, but I don't think free agency is the way to go about it, which is why I'd prefer if they do go the free agency route it is for long term impact players. The 2004 team was in a lot better shape to add a few mid level veteran signings, if they take the same approach with this team we'll just be treading water. The volume is going to have to come via acquiring and developing young players. Hahn's actually off to a good start IMO with the the acquisitions of the Garcias and the rapid development of Semien and Johnson.
