While Struber is certainly making a compelling case to equal or surpass Armas' incompetence though may not be there yet (though quickly getting there), so far Thellwell has done even worse than Hamlett. At least with Hamlett we always seemed to have that #10 spot after Henry left with Sacha and Kaku. Got guys like Royer and Sims too, who were productive in final 3d. Jesse gets credit for that too, but still. It almost seems like Kevin's motto to Denis is that anything you can do, I can do worse. Hamlet screwed up with Jorgey's 2.5 mil waste, so Kevin doubles that up with Klimala.
So far, it looks like this to me: Thelwell < Hamlett < lamppost.
Hamlet and Armas both road Jesse's coattails. Sacha was a Jesse move. Kaku had mixed reviews, at best... which is not to say we wouldn't be better off with him right now.
Klimala hasn't been great, or even particularly good, but he's no Matty Ice. Harper seems to be the closer comparison, but we didn't spend $2M+ on Harper. Gutman and Edwards are strong additions. Reyes and Fabio may still prove to be. The bar is very, very low.
