So next week we hear Coppy say.." we think Carl Crawford will be a valuable member of our lineup"

That makes me nauseous.  

We made our ML club worse and diluted the return on several trades in order to rid ourselves of bad contracts.

Now we want to take on more bad salary in order to get better in 2020?

Fuck

More picks = more money in the draft = being able to pick (and sign) better players.

I'd take Crawford for the Dodgers' supplemental pick.  What else do we have going on in LF?

In a few weeks?  When Inciarte comes back, there is Mallex Smith.  Or maybe Ruiz is ready and Garcia moves to LF?

That's the same logic that got us Bourn, Swisher, Aybar and countless other shitty old players

Do you "tankers" ever watch a game or just sit around thinking of ways to add picks..? I someday in the not too distant future hope to watch real baseball again..

This is exactly the kind of no risk move they should be making to get even more elite talent in the system.

They should simply DFA whomever they acquire with the pick on the spot. We get the pick - and the talent and extra pool money - for only the cost of the contract. It's brilliant.
