DM on 610 right now

"the bottom line is, our players aren't good enough" - OUCH

"this is a man's league"

He also reiterated that the team is not going to go for a "quick fix" and go crazy spending on free agents.

Neal - "how many holes can you fill this offseason?"

DM - " the trade market isn't good, we may look for trades, but that's not as easy as it seems. We're going to be very agressive in acquiring the best talent we can. If that means that players on the team now have to go to the minors, so be it (Banny, this means you)".

On Jose Guillen's season - "He's done well, I think he can do better. He's a cheerleader on the bench, trying to do too much, we need a veteran player or two in this lineup to support him. Too many holes in this lineup. My job to create depth in the organization."

To me, he sends somewhat conflicting signals regarding his plans for this year, saying they're not going to go overboard on free agent signings but that they are going to be very aggressive. This can probably be taken either way, but it still seems to me that the plan is to upgrade through trades and not big FA signings.

I didn't do a perfect job of capturing everything he said, but tried to get it as accurate as possible. I didn't put it up top, but he also seems to want Billy the Kid to swing for the fences more. Anyone else have thoughts overall?
