I have read all of the rumors involving Matsui, Fukudome, Crawford, but I cannot understand why we are not focused more on starting pitching. With our line-up we should not be fighting to score runs. I agree that speed in the outfield and smarter baseball players are needed, but I would rather average 5 runs a game and give up only 3. With Lilly, who I really feel is going to be found out by National League pitching soon, Zambrano, who is a #1 most of the time, and then there is the rest. Hill, Marquis, Dempster, Marshall. Four #5s. With Howry, Marmol, and Wood to finish up, we need need 5 horses to get us to the 6th or 7th.
Our focus should be utility players in the field (Church, Cameron, etc.) and move our primary focus to the pitching mound (Santana, Gorzellany, etc.).
