“If youre asking are they going to be improved down the road, I’d say yes,” said one AL executive. “But if you’re asking are they improved next year, the answer is obviously no. I mean, youve lost your No. 1 starter, a guy who won the Cy Young Award. The bullpen looks kind of shaky right now. They havent re-signed [Scott] Hairston, so whats their outfield? And Ill go back to this: Youre taking away your No. 1 [starter], a guy who really impacts your club. Thats a big hit.”
