What does a "rebuilding" season look like?....Are we in one?

Soriano playing- The Tin-Man would have more range in left right now, my knees hurt watching him play. DL him and play Sappelt, then you might be building. No one wants him, so he is not being showcased. It's a wasted season in left.
Who is the core? Castro, Samardzija, then who? Garza if it was up to me(considering he is only 1 year older than Samardzija, just much more expensive)...I see no one else? Maybe Barney, LaHair...so we don't have any young guys "building" or improving. Maybe that changes after June...I would like to see Rizzo, Sappelt, Vitters all get a chance to play.
Where is the "Cubs Way?"If the Cubs way is going to preach seeing pitches, getting on base, strong fundamentals, it's not being done yet at the major league level. Madison Bumgarner strikes out 11 the other day?
Simply put, we Cub fans are really F$%ING PATIENT. However, THROW US A FRIGGIN' BONE!!! We need something to watch other than the disaster that is 2012.

I agree that calling it a rebuild is misleading, but I've never heard anyone from the Cubs use that word. I think you are right that this is the burn down, and some piles of garbage take longer to burn than other.
I don't necessarily have the pitchforks out...I just don't like calling it a rebuild...it's a burn down....
