The fact that this brass keeps asking these young players to go out and play behind this absolute joke of a starting rotation is very disturbing to say the least. Let's see.....We're trotting out De La Rosa, De Los Santos, and Glendon freaking Rusch this weekend in a crucial series, and have been doing this for the last month? O'Dowd should have cut a deal two months ago for a starting pitcher when it was evident that Morales was not in the realm of ready and Hirsh was hurt. He bemoans that teams wanted prospects, but guess what Dan, the price goes up when the stakes are highest. Had you and the rest of the front office been forward thinking, you could have had Josh Fogg, Ian Snell, and Tim Redding for much less than what was being demanded this past week. Rant, rant, rant. Very frustrating, and if I am Matt Holliday or Garret Atkins, I want nothing to do with this farm team down the road unless I see a real commitment to winning from the top of the organization.
