The best you could hope for is the team will be as good this year, and the odds are against it.
But there's no certainty that the player that is brought in to replace him won't have chemistry. Yeah it's more of an if since we know how Perry works with this group right now. But we really can't say for sure what will or won't happen. Look at the moves Murph made in 09. At the deadline everyone thought he was conceding the season and dumping but it turned out to make the team better.
