You think five years is long, ask fans of teams like the Pirates, Cubs, and Royals what happens if the guy behind your rebuild doesn't know how to evaluate talent. As sickening as the whole Theo thing was, I understand why Cubs fans were so giddy about it. They finally got a guy who could rebuild.
That's news to me. All I heard about throughout the offseason was how his hands were tied. I would like to see them use free agents to speed up the process though, but not depend on them.
