Heres the deal , if we are always going to wait for the next great prospect to come up , and never fill the holes, then you have what Tori and the rest said ....at 1 point you have to say ok today we will fill those holes from out side the Org. and go for it, this year No ,but shortly ....

I've actually acknowledged that Bonifacio is what he is over these 9 pages- very fast, the 7th best baserunner in MLB since 2010, can play 6 positions with varying degrees of competence, and has hit for a high OBP since 2010 (except for one half season in Toronto)- in short, a marginal big league player that has successfully been a fit for many teams looking for speed and positional flexibility- and was sought by 8 or 9 clubs in this latest go-round.
I got the point on Borbon, not all deals work out in generating value, and I think the Cubs remember that concept in relation to Borbon quite well.
Baltimore likely got a starting OFer for a guy who developed with Baltimore from a very suspect talent into a bona fide DH specialist/back-up 3rd baseman.
