Obviously a year where you lose 100 games is not successful, but considering it's a tear down, I think they did the best they could do. Got a couple of young promising players in Almora and Soler, got a real prospect back for a one year signing in Paul Maholm and shed 50 million off the 2013 payroll.
If his sales pitch of Soriano last week actually gets anyone to bite in the offseason, I don't see how this couldn't be viewed as a successful start to the rebuilding process.
Only thing that went wrong was the Dempster trade.
What about the Ian Stewart trade?
