Why are these miserable times? We got a rebuild that was half assed. Now it's full blown!! All of our picks! This is heaven!!! We are in the lottery for the 3rd time in FOUR years and we had picks in ALL of them!! Possibly another one next year!!
Eventually...this has to work. Just stay the course and keep all picks!!
Right! We get 2 super high lottery picks. One this summer, the other the summer after.
And the best part is that KP can't say shyt!
Oh stop it.
You two guys were ecstatic earlier in the year.
It’s not miserable for me other than KP getting injured and the Jeff-Vet love affair. We’re going to be in the lotto the next two years and hopefully we can develop the kids. Even took a flier on a guy I liked.
You're right! I was.
But there's no hypocrisy here. I said - and you can look this up if you want - that we would not begin to tank until the trade deadline because we needed to try and build a winning culture here. Now the trade deadline has come and gone and we're all in with playing the kids. There's still plenty of time to tank. Actually, I was down with the tank about 2-3 weeks before the deadline. The handwriting was already on the wall by then.
Now with KP out, we turn lemons into lemonade. We're going to "tank" whether we like it or not. So let's get two great draft picks and get ready for free agency 2019. KP will come back better than ever and we'll be competing in the playoffs 19-20. Obviously, KP getting hurt changes a lot. But I'm optimistic that it'll all work out to our benefit in the end.
