Yeah, as I said elsewhere, the team will say that they just want to tread water until they can get back to full strength and then give that group a chance to play together.

So even though that isn't my ideal roster (even when everyone gets back), I don't see how they would start to make wholesale changes this early. If they are still floundering a few games over but falling farther off the pace by some time in July, then I could see a more dramatic move made to shake things up. But they're not going to pull AG now. That would be way out of character for this FO.

Juice's position is that this already isn't a contender and I don't disagree with that. I projected this at 82 or 83 iirc. But as long as they stay on the fringes of relevance here, it's doubtful they're going to acknowledge being out of it and play for next year. Not anytime soon.

They’re at the fringes now and haven’t had Yo and Frazier for awhile. They’re not giving up yet

You can "not give up" and still retool. Everyone assumes you either have to buy or sell. This team would be better without several members. Alonso or Dom, Peterson, Oswalt, in the mix would likely improve the team.

Cespedes and Frazier are keys to a winning formula. Ramos, Gonzalez, Reyes, Vargas are not the answer.
