Seems like overall the batch replacing them constitutes a downgrade. Even if you score Johnson as an equivalent replacement of Peavy, and Downs an upgrade over Thornton. Reed, Craine, Santiago replaced by Belisario, Veal (or ?), and Paulino...unless I'm missing something, that's a pretty steep fall off. Kind of hard to pick up valuable pieces during a rebuild without falling off somewhere, though, might as well be the bullpen. Pretty much have to rebuild a bullpen constantly anyway. I think Hahn could have done better than Paulino for the rotation though. I hope I'm wrong, and Coop fixes him. Should be an interesting season at any rate.
