"I think what we've been looking for is flexibility -- the flexibility to adopt the kind of [spending] strategy you described, at least having it as an option," Alderson said. "I certainly believe what has transpired makes that more possible. But, at the same time, as I've said, we're going through a process of redirection and sort of reinvigoration, if you will. That takes a little bit of time and a little bit of patience. But I do believe having put this behind us and the likelihood of this major investment in the team allows us a greater array of options going forward." Does anyone believe this means the team can bid on adding Jorge Soler to the farm? Any other Pollyannaish ideas?
