OK, I hate to be a negative nellie but. . . . . .

Just thought I would point this out - the Dbacks' major off-season acquisitions were JJ Putz, Zach Duke, Geoff Blum, Melvin Mora, Armando Galarraga, Xavier Nady, Rusell Branyon, Willie Bloomquist & Henry Blanco

Just thought I'd look at what they did as a group in 2010. . . . .

JJ Putz  1.5 WAR : 2011 salary - $4M

Zach Duke  -1.0 WAR : $3.5M

Geoff Blum -0.3 WAR : $1.35M

Armando Galarraga -0.7 WAR : $2.3M

Melvin Mora 0.1 WAR : $2M

Xavier Nady -1.0 WAR : $1.75M

Henry Blanco 0.3 WAR : $1M

Willie Bloomquist -0.1 WAR : $900K

(WAR & salary per baseball-reference.com)

I mean, maybe I'm missing something but that's $16.8M for a total of -1.2 WAR
