Something in the scouting pitching dept needs to be changed...obviously. Something isn't clicking. Myette, Wright, Ginter, Rauch, West, Allen, Barcelo etc...the most overrated farm system quite possible in MLB history. So much so, BA had us winning the world series in 2004 with an awesome, young rotation.
Freddie, how are you getting guys out?
