So, there have been 999,999 threads on Mcc about retooling the Giants for 2009 and beyond.
I just want to point out that the probability of your rebuilding success is not dependent on the amount of punishment you deal to your fans in terms of fielding pathetic losing teams.
Correlation is not Causation!
The Giants management job is, I think we all agree, to maximize the chances of pennants for 2008 and the future. Note I switched from the 2009 everyone is assuming to the 2008.
"Playing kids" because they might miracle their way above mediocrity does not help.
There's no Punting in baseball.
