I would rather lose with our guys then win with theirs

Yes, I wanted the Cubs to sign Bourn, because that's the way the league works. But I would have been just as happy to go into the season with Campana as the starter. Replace Campana, or Sori and Dejesus in the OF with Jackson or Ha or Vitters or Lake or Szczur or any Cubs prospect or farm hand, and I have no gripes.
Yes some trades and signings are fine only because its the way it is and you might as well stop watching sports if you don't like player movement, but it still doesn't change the fact that it sucks. If I was Lebron, I wouldn't want to play with Wade, I'd want to dunk his skull through the basket while playing against him, but that's just me. I don't wanna use Baez, Almora, Vogelbach, Johnson, Soler and such to make trades, I wanna use them to beat the other teams prospects once they reach the majors and win championships. Add those guys to Barney, Castro, Jackson, Vitters, Shark, Castillo. I would rather lose with those guy then win a World Series with Josh Hamilton, Albert Pujols, Prince Fielder, Zack Grienke, and all your other big time free agents from the past few years. I would rather earn it through hard work then buy it.

Hey, you can't have enough Pie in your life MG.
Curious what you definitions of "our" player? If you mean players we drafted and developed then say goodbye to Sandberg, Dawson, Sosa and the majority of the best players we've had since the FA era. Would you rather we kept Theriot, Pie, Patterson etc. Come on man!

Yes I would love to see an all homegrown team, but that is highly unlikely for any team because a high majority of prospects dont pan out, and Vitters is a perfect example of this. Go back to the year (2008) where he was a top 50 prospect, youre telling me you wouldnt trade him for a SP to replace Marquis or cover for when Harden was hurt? I know hindsight is 20/20 but come on its ridiculous to say teams shouldnt trade prospects.
