The Big Acquisition: what do we hope/expect to achieve ????

Have been reading all these articles and comments about all of this stuff, sometimes with interest, often with some bemusement, often with some puzzlement....quite honestly.

A lotta folks here are all excited and tossing names and numbers all over the place...while some (a definite minority but gladly, a present minority which is speaking up some now) are questioning whether this is really a wise course for an organization such as the T's to take.

But rather than argue, I am more curious to just get an impression of what folks here expect to achieve by tossing a couple million dollars at an individual player ?

The T's have it, and apparently they are hot to spend it.

So....looking into the future, and in your expectation...what would make the acquisition 'successful'....vs. mediocre or a wash or a bust ?

We spend a few million on someone, they arrive in the middle of the season....then what happens ?

What would this look like to have made it a worthwhile investment/strategy ?

Wondering folks' thoughts on that. I was toying with making this a poll, just to keep discussion on-track.....but then I thought I might be leaving out some possible responses which might be germane, so I will leave it as stated instead.

Alright guys, I don't believe I have to say this but, just in case, please do not submit anything racist, homophobic, sexist or otherwise not appropriate for even the younger Timbers fans.
