“There’s no rush,” general manager Ken Williams said Sunday morning. … “I think more than anything, you’re trying to put the best roster on the field to win today’s game. The last thing I want to happen is we lose this division by one game, a half game, and we think back and were there times, and I do that. I go back, ‘we should have won this game, we should have won that game. You put the best team out there when you can put the best team out there. There are advantages, roster-wise, when you get to September, but the focus has to be on today.”
You should’ve thought that before trading for him and then giving him a 3-year contract, Kenny.
