Look guys, these discussions are never pleasant. But we have to face facts, the bench stinks. Just look over there, in the side bar under "Links". Sure, we still have our heavy hitters and crafty veterans, but there is enough dead wood on there to heat a small town on the North Shore. I realize that some of these guys may be on the DL, and we don't cut anyone loose for getting hurt. But a couple of these blogs haven't been updated since 2006 and many of the rest went cold in 2007. How long do we keep carrying these guys when they aren't doing the rest of the team any good?
Look, spring training is about to start. We need to get some new blood and make a fresh start on the links section. We have a good solid core but we need to get some contributors who are really going to, you know, contribute. I know you like the old guys because they are scrappy and battle their tails off. But I don't need any fancy metrics, saber- or otherwise to tell you we need some changes around here.
