Hak Ju-Lee is the only piece of the Garza trade I regret giving up. Archer is likely targeted for the bullpen, and you can find Sam Fulds anywhere.
The Cubs spent $4 million on the 2009 and 2010 drafts. That's embarrassing. Look at the drafts from 2007 to now and Samardzija and Barney are the biggest impact players. That's very, very bad.
Quality is always better than quantity. I never bought into Wilken's draft philosophy. I'd rather draft and throw money at one or two great sure thing players than scatter money at 10 marginal players.
Whether it comes from [the media] or even comes from some fans, who are deservedly upset at a given point, it's really just noise. If we let it affect our decision making, shame on us
