Part of me still sees this team competing next year with the rotation as is and adding a couple of good bats.

Key to me is getting rid of Rios.
Where are those bats going to come from? More aging hitters on the downside of their careers? That stellar farm system we have with the likes of Jared Mitchell waiting in the wings? Signing failed first round picks aka Tyler Greene where we throw smelly stuff against the wall to see what sticks?

This team has too many holes and not enough money or smarts to legitimately compete next year. Hate to say it, but not trading Peavy either now or in the offseaon is a mistake. Not trading Rios is also a mistake. Heck, not trading Viciedo is a huge mistake. If he's our future, watch out last place because we are a moving in.
