Yep, when Dexter Fowler is your biggest FA trophy since an elderly Beltran that's not maintaining excellence. Mike Leake's your long-term acquisition anchor? That's what you're able to go out & secure?
From a franchise face & franchise personality standpoint thank God they extended Molina. I fear the vacuum of personality & star power we're facing as his career winds down. Who's going to be our poster guy or poster guys? I don't see one in the pipeline. CMart's talented but whether he'll mature & grow into a consistent all-around Ace & anchor is iffy IMO. And, can we retain him if he does?
Need some top-tier, core talent.
