Your missing the point.
How isn't acquiring Quentin and Swisher considered rebuilding while improving your current team? Both players are young and under team control for many years. And Swisher is very good right now. Gio, de los Santos, Sweeney (almost a throw-in IMO) and Carter are very unproven prospects that could be good or could bust.
It's the anti-moneyball rebuilding model taking advantage of the prospect hype. And just a theory of mine, not saying it's the correct way to go.
