Post What Rebuilding Looks Like

Note the red lines on the game results. Especially note Jul 17 - Aug 9 2012, and Sep 14 - Sep 29 2013.

Note also the first pick of the 2013 draft. Somehow all this was overcome just four years later.

Also notable is that the only significant name ahead of the Tim Anderson pick is Kris Bryant. The only two significant ones after Anderson are Aaron Judge and Sean "Who are the Red Sox?" Manaea.

Agreed.

Not only did the Astros screw up their #1 pick chance in 2013, but they also DFA'd this guy in spring training 2014:

Altuve WAR history shows 3 years of suckage before he started producing

2011 - 0.6
2012 - 1.4
2013 - 1.0
2014 - 6.1
2015 - 4.8
2016 - 7.9

I posted something similar on the Minor Observations board. For all of the hand-wringing we do about White Sox drafting foibles, there's a very small number of guys they missed on that would have made a huge difference. I went through all of their first round draft picks from '99 - '12 and the only 3 names they passed on that jump off the page are Trout, Votto, and Seager.

I mentioned this in a previous post and Iíll say it again. What the Astros have done is even more impressive than the north side team and other rebuilt teams is that the Astros missed on the first pick in back to back drafts in 2013 and 2014 (Mark Appel and Brady Aiken).

White Sox fans would be out with pitchforks if this happened to this organization.

Astros made up for that mistake with the Gattis, Giles, Verlander and Cole trades. The real coup was the signing bonus wrangling in 2012 and 2015, even though it blew up in their faces in 2014.

Aiken? they more than made for it with Kyle Tucker the next year (and Bregman at #1). It was actually pretty savvy - it was a weak draft so take the pick the next draft.

The other thing about the Sox is that their 2-40 round picks, in general, don't do much either.

And let's not forget they were fortunate enought to have the first pick in a draft with a can't miss once in a decade player (Correa). You get one of those and it's easy to get past whiffing on a couple others.

Wait a minute, you mean that 2013 team had Altuve, Keuchel, and JD Martinez and still lost 111 games? This is NOT what a rebuild is supposed to look like.

Oh, and speaking of Keuchel, can we say "BUST"? He's already 25 (in 2013) and sporting an ERA over 5. According to the arm-chair GMs and scouts on WSI, that's well past the point of having hope that a prospect will "figure things out."

Please comment on players, not on other posters posts unless it is directly related to the content of a given post. Making broad sweeping generalizations about other posters or groups of posters is what we are trying to get away from.

Things like this keep in perspective that ďRome wasnít built in a day.Ē Some picks will turn out great, some will not. Some will be considered busts and others gambles that paid off. I have been generally happy with the talent we have acquired the past couple years and am excited to see how many of them make a ML impact the next two seasons.

Sure it can be done.
It can also turn out like the Royals and Pirates...take 20 years to win, and the winning lasts for 3.
Is this FO like the Astros, or is it like the Royals and Pirates?
Based on the drafting, it isn't like the Astros......
