For all the trade talk surrounding Willis I can’t understand why you’d want to let a catch like him go. We’re not talking about a Zito or a Meche. We’re talking the face of a franchise. If Ernie Banks is Mr. Cub than D-train is Mr. Marlin. Or at least he should be. For a team with 2 World Series wins they lack Hall of Fame depth. The Rockies and D-Backs will have guys contest for Copperstown caps come 2020.
Maybe the ballpark is the secret here. The key to building roots. It’s not like they haven’t won. But if you need a program to tell you who’s wearing your uniforms you have to keep some of these guys. Shell out some coin, please.
