Umm, we've been deep into the playoffs and the World Series two out of the last three years. Don't emote.
We lost a wild card game and lucked into a World Series. In seven years those were the only two years in which we had a winning record and that's with Terry doing an incredible job with the lack of talent on the roster. The point stands, what has Sandy done to earn an extension? The roots of this team was built on Minaya's picks, Sandy's great trade for Thor was on a Cy Young Winner that Omar signed. What diamonds in the rough has Sandy found that he's so known for? What great talent is on the horizon for this team?
He was convinced to sign Rosario, he picked Conforto. Everything else is looking like a big time question mark right now.
What happens if the trade for Gomez goes through and we don't land Cespedes? Do we even make the playoffs that year? Why build a team with pitching but don't have an defenders behind them? Why have a great pitching staff just to have the bullpen blow leads?
I know I know, us a small market team we shouldn't complain.
