Check it out. He seems to think that it will be hard for Texas to make any sorta impact trade based on how stacked our system is. You know what though, I totally agree. Teams know we are stacked. A bullpen arm for example, will cost us more in terms of players and or upside then it would for lets say toronto, who aren't exactly stacked in the minors.
I also noticed that Benny Broussard was signed by the Cubbies. I didn't notice that here but thought I'd pass it along.
Also, is it another young GM mistake by not placing Benoit on the 15 day DL and keeping Tejeda for a while longer? The way Jamey puts it, it may very well be. The Rangers were hoping to use Benny by this weekend and if things don't go well, then I guess once again we could possibly loose an extra arm that we could have used.
Basically, I think JD can build a very useful team, can stack a farm system with quality depth, and has the right tools around him to develop them. I don't think he knows that well how to manage his roster. That is part of his job right?
