I thought Gettleman showed very clearly last year that he doesn't believe in the strict 'build through the draft' philosophy that Hurney followed. We signed far more free agents than i recall ever with Hurney. Ginn, Mitchell, Mikell, Hixon, Wharton, and so on.
What he did was fill most of our holes in free agency to give us the luxury of BPA in the draft. I would expect another active year in free agency. Not big names, but he'll make his splash.
