No, it is like that. Or rather, it is EXACTLY that. Yeah, we've got one piece. But baseball is a team game where you need 22 -25 legitimate pieces, 10 - 15 at a very high level (depending on how good those top ones are). On top of that, there's very little in line of upcoming talent in the next few years. Depending on personal opinion, there are anywhere from 2 to 7 legitimate pieces on this squad for next year. Not only do we have THAT much to fix, we have more to fix than pretty much any other squad in baseball (considering the sad state of both our major league roster and our minor league system). We've made some good moves this off-season, but lets not act like we're not in line for another 90 loss season.
