The other thing is...it hasn't been an all out rebuild. It's been a primarily rebulid situation combined with a small chunk of a very half-a**ed effort to be mediocre now. Just like as you mentioned with Reyes.
Or the way they're going to end up spending last year and this year the same amount on trash that has no future with us like Fat Frank and Jon Rauch as it would've cost to sign Yoennis Cespedes and actually take a shot on a young guy who can help us long-term and fill a HUGE need.
But yes, it should never be forgotten that this process could have gone faster if we had owners that actually wanted to win.

Regardless of why we've been set upon this path, it is a path that I believe this franchise has needed to be on for over two decades now. It's the path that I believe will be best for this franchise's health over the longer haul. Frankly I don't really care if we got here because of the Wilpon's folly finally coming to a head, or whether it is really Sandy's great vision/plan. I get frustrated with losing too, but I am more than willing to endure more of it, if the greater good is served, and we have annual winners here for the next 10 years or whatever.
