ESan missing the year was 100% predictable. Were they in on Darvish, because I keep reading how stupid that deal was.....that signing him was a bad idea. They could have called up Astudillo earlier to catch, they didn't. Then when they did, he didn't catch. This isn't just about bad luck. Oh, and lots of people said they should acquire another OF, in case Buxton or Kepler or Rosario wasn't good. They weren't close on Ohtani.
They signed a bunch of 1 year deals, and a guy that they knew wouldn't play last year. They did nothing to fix this year, last year (well, maybe Austin, but they just signed his doppleganger).
They signed 4 players that made the 25 man roster. Reed / Rodney / Morrison & Lynn. Reed was a 2 year deal. Morrison and Rodney had a 2nd year team option. Lynn was one year. Is it really fair to characterize Morrison and Rodney as 1 year deals when they had a team option. Would you agree that 1 year with a 2nd year option is a much more advantageous position to be in for the team? While I suppose you could make a case you are technically accurate, your portrayal of the situation is misleading.
