so they should have kept him, and not made the playoffs again? Seems like a bad strategy to me. At some point, you realize you aren't good, and trade your stars to rebuild (I know as a Twins' fan, that seems odd.......).
So, getting the number 1 prospect in the game, that's not a good start on the rebuild? Not sure I understand, and whether you like it or not, he's pretty much number 1 or 2 or 4....not 20, not 100....
Its not actually a forgone conclusion that they will be bad next year or the year after that (or 2019). They finished with 78 wins last year.
I'm curious. At what point do you think teams should launch into rebuild?
