3B or whatever Biggio isn't playing is just as important as CFI know it's hard to be patient, but SS and RP are probably the least important positions for this team to fill with a free agent/trade. I'm not really a huge fan of Springer or Bauer but we may as well use the $54 million towards one of those guys instead.
LeMahieu is great but CF and SP still the most pressing needs.
Don't get me wrong, they should be working their asses off in the analytics dept. to identify relievers, and I don't mind spending money there. Just not $54 million.
Nobody would be chirping Shatkins in a vacuum over missing out on Hendriks. It's this being yet another player in a hilariously long line of players we've courted and not landed.
