I understand he may have cost a little more, but my point is I don't care. Quit hording multiple prospects and pony up.
I will give this organization the off season to prove themselves. If it results in a stand pat or move backwards direction, I will be the first person in line to skewer the FO and ownership(not that I mean anything to anyone LOL ). This core needs supplementing in order to take the next step and be a postseason contender. It's time right now. Don't let a replay of the Santana/Hunter/M&M core replay itself.
And if the price was Lewis or get lost?I think it says something that he wasn't traded at all.On top of that, would the Twins have beaten the Yankees with Smith on the roster? With the way things went, I would say no, probably not.Smith is now a free agent.Go get him.
