I'd like to think that warrants a bit more trust from those who hold the reins than the panicked notion that they can just "tell us different" and everything will be okay.

I agree, but I also think that as far as the current situation goes, maybe the FO just doesn't know yet which way it's going and is sat on the fence until things become clearer.

We're still 1 1/2 games up on the MFY - if we run into some good form and put some daylght between us and them, then maybe the trade deadline sees a move designed to improve postseason chances. If, however, we go into a prolonged slump, then I guess the decision to make it a transition season makes itself.

The FO clearly knows more about running a baseball franchise than we ever will, but as far as predicting hot and cold streaks goes, they know about as much as the average fan on the sreet, i.e. sod-all.

I think the next two weeks are the key period. If things really don't look good, then maybe Theo will stand up and say "OK - we're officially working towards next season and the ten seasons after that." I would, like you, appreciate more trust than a simple statement of what will be blindingly obvious to everyone, but I think that, right now, no-one really knows which way the pendulum is going to swing.
