It's a slow build, but glad there is some home grown talent in the pipeline, just like in 2002-2005 when Russel Martin, Matt Kemp, Chad Billingsley, Jonathan Broxton, James Loney, etc. were all in the system and eventually became somewhat productive major leaguers.
Glad management made the moves to produce an instant playoff contenders, to appease the fan base, while the real build of the frachise happens behind the scenes. If we would've won last year, or even this year, it would've been an accident.
