As far as I can tell, no one (at least no one I can remember) is advocating actually, truly tanking. TANKING would be sitting Gabby "for precautionary reasons"; tanking would be deciding that "Hank needs to rest every other day due to the Olympic strain"; tanking would be sending MDZ back to his junior team "to experience their playoff run".
PARTS LIKE PROSPAL AT THE DEADLINE.
Again, for those who are going to be stubborn about this, rational, planned selling =/= tanking.
Maybe another word needs to be used. That word does suggest intentionally losing games.
How about REBUILD? I think that's a nicer way of saying the team is not competing for a championship at this point in time. And is looking to rebuild through the draft.
