    I hope it turns out well long term, but my take is not aging well.

    Yeah, exactly. News flash: most baseball games are close when the bullpen enters the game.

    You're in a thread full of sarcasm.  You should expect such replies.

    Who could have predicted not addressing the bullpen over the winter was a very risky strategy? Trading your best reliever a terrible idea?
     
    These outcomes are at least partially the result of front office decisions. 
     
    In the future I hope the front office changes tactics. A weak bullpen is difficult to maneuver around, ends up throwing away games, and erodes confidence everywhere.

    I agree on the last part. I've been saying for a long time now there are no "low leverage guys" in a bullpen.

    As for Rocco, he's pretty good. 
    Not as good as I would be, of course. 
    But pretty good.
     
    I also think this article's headline would be better if it was 5 words shorter.

    USAFChief got a reaction from Battle ur tail off in What types of trades should Twins pursue?   
    Bolstering the bullpen has to be priority 1. Just be prepared to pay, because it'll be a sellers market.
     
    And as an aside, let's stop pretending each winter that "the bullpen is fine," "relievers are easy to find," "relievers are fungible," and all the other excuses.
    Baseball has changed. Bullpens take on more innings seemingly every year, grow more important every year, and require seemingly endless options. 
    We'll need to spend prospects this year. But I'd really like this pursuit to get more attention year round in the future.

    Do I have that correct?
     
    Do not concur.
