    Honestly, I think this team has hit a point where adding a competent 4th OFer doesn't make sense anymore. Losing SRod pretty much tanked the small chances of breaking the 80 win level, so why spend the cash on an upgrade to the bench?

    I think that money would be better used buying a prospect at the deadline from a team that needs to unload an expensive veteran.

    I am willing to bet any amount of money that if the Braves had decided to build around position players, thethe would be all for that strategy. His posi-Braves homerism knows no bounds.

    To that note...

    v2micca: Of the teams out there currently engaged in an active rebuild, which organization’s rebuild contains the most risk?

    Dave Cameron: Probably the Braves, since so much of their long-term bets are on pitchers.

    I saw that too, but I don't think he is correct.

    In the analysis I did, the Braves have 14 guys in the Top 200, 8 of which are pitchers (57%).

    The ChiSox have 9 in the Top 200, 7 of which are pitchers (78%). Further, the ChiSox are holding on to a very valuable pitcher in hopes the offers for him increase. They are assuming even more "pitcher-specific" risk every time Q touches a baseball in a White Sox uniform.

    I really like what the Yankees and Brewers are doing. Both have a total prospect value just under $300M, and both have the majority of that value tied up in hitters.
