OK, it's been a dramatic and even shocking week, but time to take stock.
We clearly got hosed in the Moreno trade, Taaffe is gone and we have Bellefeuille, Anthony moves to MLB, and Kashama will take Anthony's place at DE (acquired at a low price - well, high salary, but we didn't give up much for him). Also signed were Coker who might play this year, and Tafaris who will likely have no impact this year.
What % better or worse are we than last week? My gut is that we're probably 10% worse, but if Anthony and Kashama can rise to the occasion, we might even get better. The other unknown is how the offense will be affected by Marcel's move to HC and DMac's added responsibilities...considering all this, I say 10% worse.
