I wouldn’t judge their season a failure or success based on wins. I’d judge it based on how many building blocks they can put in place.

Davis and Reimold perform admirably in a full season at-bats.
Chen and Wada pitch decently despite all the new challenges facing them in America.
Johnson assumes the closer’s role as if it was his set-up role.
B-Rob’s replacements (Andino, Antonelli, Flaherty, and Adams) hold up to at least replacement level.
Adam Jones takes the next step and becomes a star.
Tillman, Bergesen, and Matusz pitch well in the minors and force their way onto the big league roster.
Machado and Schoop continue their development well.
Dylan and Bobby Bundy pitch well at Delmarva and Bowie, respectively.

I disagree with that. I think he has played an above average 2B and has hit when he was given a chance. Just look at his September numbers. I would give him the chance to win the 2B job in ST and platoon Andino with him.

Is there a particular player you are looking for a good season from? A certain number of wins?
