I voted for the Kenny/Hahn option in your poll largely on the strength of those two getting Jerry to spring for a rebuild he’s never seemed particularly keen on, especially when he’s probably at least a little concerned about his chances to see the end of it. I’m much less sanguine about their ability to convince him to spring for Machado, or his “tier,” but I could see a repeat of the spending they did after 2014, which could bear fruit, if the trades and drafting give them more of a margin to work with than they had back then.
