New Management, Alternate Plan...A Constructive Hypothetical?



Here we are in the midst of the 18th-straight losing season. Things have been bad this year. Lots of crushing loses, whether they be 20-0 or 6-5. There have been inept performances on the mound, behind the plate, at the plate, and on the basepaths....and yet, many of us are finding reasons to hope (I know I am). Cutch (even with his recent slump) has been quite good. Until this Brewers series, the bullpen has been outstanding. Alvarez and Tabata are giving reasons for optimism (and that's basically all we can hope for--Greg Jeffries-type performances are rare and usually fleeting--I'd take the slow, growing-pains-filled progression any day). And, despite some unfortunate injuries in the minors, our recent trades and drafts have done well to at least start restocking what had basically been an empty farm system.

 

That being said (my opinion, that is), there are a lot of people calling for the management team to be fired and for Nutting to sell the team. On the one hand, I think that's ludicrous because I personally feel that the plan is a good one, and for the first time since the early 90s there is actually a plan. On the other hand, I do see the frustration because this type of plan necessitates time and suffering through more losing before the climb up begins (and with so many contigencies, the climb up COULD never happen in this plan).

Nutting's not going to sell, BUT, here's my question to you all: "What is the alternate plan?"

I am asking this out of genuine curiosity and in the spirit of good discussion, not to be snarky or to be a troll magnet. For those of you who want Huntington and Coonely fired and Nutting to sell, what is the plan you'd like to see be enacted? In what areas would it be better than the current one? In what ways worse? What are the logistics?

Basically, if they say, "Screw it. We're starting over." Tomorrow. What do you think is the best course of action? I'm interested to hear your thoughts.
