    While there have always been franchises in baseball rebuilding for the future, the act of rebuilding itself -- explicitly absorbing short-term losses to further long-term goals -- remains controversial. Cheap Stars Jerseys . But what is undeniable is that many of the most successful teams in baseball preceded their runs with a stretch of rebuilding or, less charitably, tanking.The 2015-2016 Chicago Cubs became one of the best teams in baseball, their fallow years allowing them to focus on assembling the farm system and putting off the big-ticket contracts until contention was more realistic. While the 2016 Houston Astros have been disappointing, the 2015 team that came close to knocking off the eventual World Series champions had lost 111 games just two years prior. And where would the Kansas City Royals be without a series of deals that landed them Lorenzo Cain, Alcides Escobar and Wade Davis, among others, years after Zack Greinke departed?Right now, there are arguably five teams in baseball voluntarily going through the full tear-down-and-rebuild process: the Atlanta Braves, Cincinnati Reds, Milwaukee Brewers, Philadelphia Phillies and San Diego Padres. While the goal is the same for all five teams, the overarching strategy and approach to their respective rebuilds is quite different. To help answer who will get to the promised land quicker than the rest, Ive enlisted the aid of the ZiPS projection system. Stars Jerseys 2021 . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. Dallas Stars Store . Brett Kulak and Jackson Houck of the Vancouver Giants were each charged with assault causing bodily harm on Aug. 18, according to the B.C. court services. ;. He said Tuesday thats a big reason why he is now the new coach of the Tennessee Titans. Whisenhunt said he hit it off quickly with Ruston Webster when interviewing for the job Friday night.There is nothing like the ping of an aluminum bat in the cool spring air or the sight of a guy who bought his spot on the Goldeyes roster at a charity event – actually coming in TWICE to act as pinch runner -- or watching the Goldeyes score three runs in the eighth to put the game away without the benefit of a single hit. Yes, its the annual pre-season game between the University of Winnipeg Wesmen and the Winnipeg Goldeyes and its usually a crazy evening at the ballpark. It certainly was a crazy one on Friday night. This year, the Wesmen played a heck of a game, pinging out nine hits in an 8-4 loss to the local pro team. For the Goldeyes it was the final home game of the pre-season and while it probably didnt tell Rick Forney a lot about his new team, it did give his players a chance to have some fun at home before heading out for 16 days on the road. "I thought the Wesmen kids did a great job tonight," said Forney. "They played a real good baseball game. We saw a better team this year than last year, thats for sure. Their shortstop made two real good plays and the third baseman made a great play in the eighth. Their fundamentals were better than last year. Theyre improving. They gave us a real good baseball game." Left fielder Ryan Scoma was the player of the game for the Goldeyes, going three-for-three with two runs scored and an RBI. Fehlandt Lentini went two-for-five with a run scored and two drivven in. Fake Stars Jerseys. The Goldeyes scored three in the third, two in the sixth and then three in the eighth on four walks, two productive outs and two stolen bases. Forney also had a look at six pitchers. The only pitcher to struggle was Justin Garcia who gave up all four runs on four hits in the fourth inning. "Our pitchers had some trouble getting loose in the colder weather," said Forney. "The balls werent rubbed up and they didnt get a good feel for the baseball. And I thought our outfielders had some trouble picking up the ball off the aluminum bats, but we played good defense today and I was happy with a good days work." Nick Drews and Brendan Gaunt each had two hits for the Wesmen.  Drews scored a run and also drove one in. The Wesmen starter Josh Loewen, in his final game at the university level, was the hard-luck loser. However, in 5.2 innings of work, he allowed five runs on 11 hits and didnt look out of place against a professional ball club. Aaron Correa earned the victory for the Goldeyes after throwing two scoreless innings. That was the final home pre-season game for the Goldeyes. The team will now head out onto the road, play in Fargo Saturday night and Sunday afternoon and then in Kansas and Wichita next week before opening the season in Grand Prairie, Texas next Friday night. The first home game is not until May 27 when the Laredo Lemurs open the season at Shaw Park. ' ' '
