How long should I wait? When I asked that question last year, people said 2014/5. I'd bet those same people would now say 2016 before you can judge his work. How long should we wait?
Should we just accept the awful job of adding players in FA over the last few years? Should we accept they had NO PLAN for CF this year if Hicks didn't work? Should we accept that during a rebuild they use veteran RP with no options left, rather than young players?
How and when should Ryan be held accountable for the success or failure of this team?
btw, I'm ok with people saying be patient, but there has to be a timeline for goals, or they are not goals.
It's hard to have goals when your best two prospects, both likely to see MLB at some point in 2014, go down with injuries early in the season.
Goals can't be fixed in place, particularly when there are a multitude of variables that are completely out of your control. There is absolutely nothing a team can do when the #1 prospect in baseball goes down for half the season and the #4-6 prospect goes down for the entire season.
That's just **** luck.
