3. Being too passive
This is something we're kind of already seeing, at least that's what it feels like from the outside. The deadline is less than two days away, and while there has apparently been a lot of interest in the likes of E-rod and Lorenzen, no deal has been made. Other teams around the league have already been making deals for a few days now. What's the hold-up?
We really hope Harris isn't waiting for a deal to come to him. We would like to see him be much more aggressive. That's what was so promising about the Gregory Soto trade. Talks started with Dave Dombrowski at the Winter Meetings, then after the trade was announced, Dombrowski said Harris called him to re-ignite those talks.
We're hoping Harris is more of a go-getter, but the fact that he hasn't made a deal yet is slightly concerning. Hopefully we'll see something here soon.
