Brewski was commenting on Robin's comment. I was wondering what he meant by it and speculated that Robin could be preparing everyone for a fire sale.
You have to think this at least has already been discussed by Hahn and his staff.
They see what's happening just as much as the players themselves and the fans.
Why do it? Well if you are going to try to rebuild I assume you can get more by trading younger players under contract for a few years. But those that follow the minor leagues more closely can weigh in if that's true or not.
