The timing of his injuries last season made it tough to trade him. So I don't fault them for that. With that said..I don't see how this is a exciting team. Not yet at least. They have a few arms that aren't too far down the pipeline in Harvey and Wheeler.
Yup, Ty Cobb, Lou Brock, Maury Wills, Willie Wilson, Tim Raines, kenny lofton, and Ricky Henderson all had short careers.
