"...superior offensive skills"...comparisons to A-Rod and Barry Bonds...come on people. A-Rod and Bonds were criticized for underperforming in the POSTSEASON. Uggla is a .240 hitter who hits with power if the ball finds his bat. He has never shown any consistency to claim he underperforms at any time. HE IS NOT WORTH $8MM.
Agree with oaktree. This team is not done yet. 90 wins is within their reach and playoffs or no playoffs, that is a remarkable season for a team ranked dead last in payroll to start the year. They're a great story, but I'm tired of great stories. Hopefully, ownership can use the certainty of a new ballpark to field a 2010 team with real expectations.

The low payroll contributes directly to the holes on this team: 1. No veteran every day player to provide offensive leadership. 2. No veteran pitcher to help mature these young talented starters. 3. No seasoned closer. 4. Just one feared bat in the line-up. 5. Various guys playing out of position. Don't get me wrong. I'm not suggesting you need to spend over $100 million. Frankly, as a fan I prefer they don't spend that much. I can't imagine what it must be like to be a Yankee fan where anything short of a championship feels like a disappointment. But, $36 million is way too low to expect consistency.

Inconsistency comes with being a payroll bottom dweller. This team has already outperformed spring training expectations, which were dismal given the low payroll. It is unreasonable to expect consistency. Let's just enjoy this ride, hope September games matter and pray off-season moves raise expectations for 2010 and beyond, which will also raise attendance.
