Yeah, it comes down to how well Morse and Moore perform. If they both put up strong offensive numbers with 30 homers each, then it will have been the right call - especially if it take 4 years to sign LaRoche. Even 3 years, I'm on the fence.
I would like to get Greinke since we don't have any young pitchers who look ready to contribute in the next year or two. He's young and durable and has put up very good numbers. But if they think giving out another $100+ mil contract will keep them from re-signing JZ, Stras, and the rest, then forget it. Give Dempster 2 years and 25 mil.
