Where’s the Beef?


 

As our good friend Khali kindly noted in the previous thread. The Dodgers missed out on acquiring some Bison. And as I noted that’s okay. $62 million for Buffalo was probably not a good fit. Wally commented a few days earlier that the FO tried to pump up the palate in 2015 with an overgrown vegetable in the form of Matt Latos. They did find Ruggiano who faired well until the post season. He was more bun than burger. And how can we forget the guy they traded Uribe for…what was his name?

This year the trade deadline has been extended by a day due to this being a leap year. 4pm eastern on August 1, the hourglass sand will run out and it will become more difficult to trade players. So let’s hope and demand that the front office takes a leap forward and adds some prime grade A beef to the table this year.

I’m sure there’s a few who disagree with the philosophy of making a trade involving our top prospects. If so, speak up. We’d love to hear/read your thoughts.
