Well, it is probably better than the Valentine’s Day Massacre.
We have the second round of defensive evaluations followed by pitching and catching evaluations.
We need a catcher for sure. The AA club will have one this year, the AAA club will have two. We also need pitching, at both levels. We badly need pitching. I am hoping we can develop some of the pitchers we currently have, but we do need to draft some quality pitchers, if we can.
Running two clubs and having to plan for future years is interesting. I have never before had to plan out anything beyond the current year. There is a lot in play.
I need to also decide on a trade that has been proposed. One of the other clubs wants our 1st round pick, 3rd over all and he’ll give us his 1st, 2nd and 3rd round picks next year. I am tempted by the offer, I think it is going to depend on what we see with the pitchers today. It might weaken us this year but could pay off next.
Those are the plans for today. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday. For those of you with a Valentine, I hope it is a good day for you.
