I know I'm in the minority on this, but I don't think our wins and losses will be impacted much if Lindor departs. So, retooling isn't something I really see as necessary.
As far as I'm concerned we should just keep doing what we're doing, and that doesn't include trading away guys in their prime that can't sign elsewhere until 2024.
I mean i would base it off of how our younger guys progress, but if the organization feels we aren't making the playoff in 22, then you trade Ramirez to make the team the best long term.
Now if we are contending/have a legit shot to make the playoffs, you keep Ramirez (unless we get an offer we cannot refuse). I just dont see how we are going to have an equal/better team than Chicago in 22 without Lindor and not having a projected replacement at the moment at 2B/3B at the moment.
I am not saying make a trade to make a trade, but i just project 20 and 21 we are contenders, but not by much and losing Santana, Lindor, Hand etc for 22, really makes it rough to project anything for 22 at the current moment. I'd rather not spend in free agency for a couple more wins, while not developing our guys. So its hard to say at the end of the day, but i don't see us in the playoffs in 22 with Ramirez and Clev, so if we can upgrade the roster long term, I think those two get traded.
