Are we even rebuilding?

I want to like Andy MacPhail.  And given the last few Executive Vice Presidents of shit ass Baseball Operations that we've had, it'll will be quite the coup to actually do much worse.  I'm even optimistic about the farm system.

But still, I wonder.  Trading Tejada (for next to nothin') and Bedard were essentially obvious moves.  We still have Roberts and Mora and Walker and Bradford and Millar and Huff and Gibbons and Payton.  All of these players are fairly useless to us.  So why are they here?

Further, we have a pretty low payroll.  But are we investing in overseas talent?  I don't expect us to get the next Dice-K, but what about the Devil Ray Japanese guy?  That seems like a smart mid-level type signing...

I just fail to see how we are rebuilding given that we've made only two trades and a Rule 5 pick.
