If they're improving their roster, they're not tanking.

There's a difference between going into the regular season with no real shot of a playoff berth, and tanking.

I dunno, maybe they should tank. LSCII seems to think that if they're not penned into a playoff spot by February, they should probably tank.

I tend to disagree. In a regular baseball season, you lose too much entertainment value by being heavily fixated on the end product and not giving yourselves opportunities for awesome moments to remember even as a non-playoff team. The regular season is a more valuable aspect of baseball season than it is in any other sport. There's something to being along for the ride. If we've lost sight of that, it's because how spoiled this ownership group has made us over the years.
