Just sell off the most valuable pieces and right this ship. You can't right it with a bunch of 34-36 year olds.
And so is most of the NL. Utley to me is the perfect veteran guy to stick around and guide a new generation of players. Howard and Rollins look done at this point, unfortunately. Utley I think is the last older guy from the 2008 world series that still has value moving into the next few years. And I know that Pederson is great but if you want to do a rebuild then you should be trading Lee first. Lee gets you Pederson+ and if you want to rebuild then Lee has no use on this team.
Plus, I think that Utley would kill himself dealing with the likes of Puig and Ramirez.
Edit: it feels real good to beat the Nats and Braves. Hate them both.
