Are we really that close?

Thought I would give this a try even though I will probably get ripped for my spelling/grammar and my post will get hijacked within three comments.  Anyways I was reading about the talk of a flexible payroll for the Giants in 2009 and how "GM Brian Sabean has been instructed to present him (Neukom) with several plans to field a competitive team in 2009. (http://blogs.mercurynews.com/extrabaggs/2008/10/07/bill-neukom-articulates-the-giants-way-and-yes-it-includes-a-bit-of-moneyball/)".

My assertation is that even with a big free agent signing and a big trade or two we are at best NL West champions and out in the first round of the playoffs.  I hate to be pessimistic in the offseason but should we really be talking about mortgaging the future (or using up money that could be used to resign Lincecum or Cain) to get a playoff appearance or two.  So what say you McCovenites get rid of some veteran contracts and wait for 2011 to bring Villalona, Posey, Alderson, Bumgarner, and possibly Noonan.  Or should we go for broke next year and hope to bring some winning back to SF.  Possible Hijack idea if my post sucked or if it has been talked about too much...last decent sports movie to come out in theatres.
