we agree we need to sign someone better than Barlow. We disagree on Mullins being better than Barlow.
Yes it should be a measure because you want the team to get better. If they dont pan out... then they would give the same production that barlow would have given you. If they meet or exceed expectations they can be better than klimala or fabio. It's a low risk signing.
And while Mullins MIGHT be a low risk signing, hes also a low reward signing. Id rather give the roster spot to Sowe and a legit starter.
