But moving forward, if we want to sustain the success, we need to keep improving. This offseason, we did NOT improve. But if you look at all the other NL competitors, they ALL got better. Nationals got better. Reds got better. Dodgers (although cant declare them competitors yet) got better. Phillies got better. But we did not.
I am not saying that we need to compete with the Dodgers and sign everyone we could. But Nick Swisher as our everyday left fielder would cost, what Torres' salary +6 Million? I am sorry but the way that we have been generating revenue the last 3 years, combined with some massive contracts expiring this offseason, there is no reason why we couldnt cant add a Nick Swisher type player.
We need some damn pop!
