not if you make moves via trades. And not just trades that look good simply because they fix mistakes like overpaying in the first place. Make trades for players that fit. This team has gotten nowhere by overpaying for average to less than average players. moremilk suggests this deal won't cripple this team, but 6 years of deals like this have in fact left this team in pretty bad shape.

As far as I can see, though they edge closer, there is still no really viable core in place here to build around with great certainty. I would think that given that situation, that amount of cap space would be spent a little more wisely. If Fields turns out to be a solid glue guy, then it works out pretty well. In my mind a vet would have brought more value at this time.
