Rebuilding the Giants: hindsight

OK, I've been in a debate with Boof about the Giants and he brought up something I had to see if others agreed with him or not, which was when the Giants should have rebuilt.

His statement, quote, was "Most everyone seems to recognize that the rebuilding of this team is going to take a long time. It's a process that should've started in earnest after the 2002 season."

Do people really believe that?  

That would mean that you are rebuilding:  

  1. the season after going to the World Series,
  2. one season after signing Bonds to a huge contract, and
  3. after two of the best seasons ever by a ballplayer, Boof either relegates Bonds to a rebuilding program that will most likely last to the end of his contract OR trade Bonds as part of the rebuilding program.
I don't understand that.  But maybe my mind is getting skewed by our ongoing arguments and I'm not seeing things straight, so I have to see if I'm seeing things correctly or not, to see what others think.
