That is not a foregone conclusion. How is it not a good move? Wilcox has starter experience and produces consistently. And he was super cheap. And his contract expires the next year so he is tradable. And if he stays, we have the early bird rights to keep him. That's a pretty damn smart signing. While everyone else is sitting on their hands, Joe is grabbing the best of what is left. No, we're not trying to get the top lotto pick, and no we're not going to win a title next year. If you have either of those expectations, you will be disappointed. And if you were a fan in 2001/2, this (rebuild) is what you have to look forward to. I think most of us realize that these moves are only the prelude to more moves, not a finished roster in one offseason. It might be a decade before we see an ECF again. Get used to it. I certainly hope you're not going to complain and be disappointed every step of the way. The fun in sucking is enjoying the ride to the top.
