Considering we're 3-13 and there's no chance of making the playoffs, in principle, we should be taking the 25 year old prospect over the 30 year old broken down guy every time. I know it's sad but I'm actually pissed we didn't sign CDR. I wouldn't have been surprised at all to see CDR at least make a Sonny Weems/Jamario Moon level "breakout" on our team. At least that'd have made the season more fun
we've been interested in pietrus for a while, and he brings that veteran presence, we need that.
