Why can't you? You'll have their salaries to replace their bodies. We have more than enough potential 'plugs' in the system to give us cheap, respectable options at positions (Asche, Gillies, Valle/Joseph, Brown, Ruff, etc. - the list goes on... if at least 3 or 4 of these guys become ML caliber starters then that gives us more money for the other 4-5) and allow us to throw money at FAs in others. Only teams on low internal budgets need to groom superstars to compete.
