They were great at drafting and developing power bats in that era (Belle, Thome, Ramirez through Giles, Casey and Sexton). They should’ve been able to deal from strength to offset the pitching needs. But they turned Giles, Casey and Sexton into Rincon, Burba and Wickman. Burba and even Wickman had some good years here but those pieces needed to land an ace and not a mid level starter, a loogy and heart attack inducing closer.
