Yup...And they'd also have to be a pretty damn magnificent 7. There's Cano, and maybe Ellsbury out there for that route. But that's not happening so saying you can change the team in 7 players means nothing because it's actually not possible. In a fantasy realm where we can draft 7 players off other rosters? Sure, we'll compete. But reality is the signings we make are either for three years from now or filler to help the young players along. That's not been short-sighted, as the original poster said. That's being realistic. Sorry that reality is that we're not close. But it doesn't make it not reality. Signing Young would be a good move.
