At this point in season we are 7-11.
minus 32 run differential. Third worse in MLB, one better than Houston.
played twice as many home games as away.
Reyes is out for 3 months.
If there was a trade undo button - for all the off season player trades (disclude Farrell- out of our hands).
no cherry picking.
Would you press it - today ?
Personally I wouldn't because upside is still a magic turnaround and contending. Maybe even if they kick into gear mid season .. you keep things together for one more shot next year.
Worst case; If things do not turn around by mid season....
Cash in shorter term assets (at trade deadline / off season) for future (young potential, prospects). Individually - at least at this point - many players will likely retain their value. Should have a stocked system again, and a couple years away from seriously trying again.
Who is currently short term asset with likely solid value; Bautista (we tried), Encarnacion, Reyes, Cabrera, All Starting Pitchers, All Relievers.
