There is tremendous debate about what to do with all our FA's. who should we keep and who should we let go. All the debate has got me thinking about the bottom line question. How does Miami become a winner again? There are 3 basic approaches.
1) resign some of our FA's, add some FA's from other teams, and draft well
2) let all our FA's walk, sign several FA's from other teams, and draft well
3) sign most of our FA's and draft well
Looking at our recent records of 7-9, 6-10, 7-9, 7-9 .... I'm not so sure if it is such a big deal if we sign any of our FA's. it's not like we are winning with them. I'm sure the FO will decide who they want based on who they envision they will target in FA but even more importantly who they want to target in the draft (more like position and not as much specific player). My own personal hope is we resign Clemons at least because I have my doubts on the rest of our own FA's. only the FO knows these players well enough to make those tough decisions.
Finally, what is Philbin's plan? Does he want to lose our FA's and rebuild through the draft? If so, then he will only be able to do so much this draft. It will take him a few drafts to get us there. Personally I would like to see us use #1 as our philosophy because I feel we can become a winner quicker. What say you?
