sounds good, just wonder about all the IF's in there. But IF a few of those many potential arms arrive and produce we could be very good. It's not like they're not trying. And like that analogy with how the Yankees build. We'll see soon enough if it works and helps us in 2020. Gotta at least compete and be in the hunt for a wildcard this year. I agree with TKK however, the biggest issue with this team even last year with the questionable bullpen and starting pitching, is the lack of hitting.

Good hitting costs money. Good relievers can usually be had at a relatively cheaper cost. Unfortunately, it seems Preller has found a way to make the bullpen expensive.
