Should MLB's bad clubs just tank?

As the 2013 Astros proved, tearing things down can lead to a faster turnaround on and off the field for losing teams. The White Sox have begun putting that notion to the test and should continue to do so.

Rondo, Butler shine in Bulls' win over the Bucks (0:48)

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

Though hitting .152 this spring Jason Heyward has done some good things late in camp including a 3 walk day on Sunday after hitting his second home run of the month on Saturday. From the start Heyward committed himself to swinging at strikes no matter what kind of frustration came with his batting average. A higher walk total this season would be a step in the right direction for Heyward.
