"Rebuild"? JDM was not very good, then he was excellent and he hasn't become un-excellent yet. So he built. Many Red Sox fans were convinced he'd collapsed but that's not the same thing as actually collapsing. Now Kendrys Morales may have rebuilt himself.

And I just read the free bit ... Brett Jackson?

Walt: Did you misread the sentence? I think its saying that JDM did rebuild why cant others. Instead of: Can JDM rebuild?

I know I read it the latter way at first, then realized that's not right. But maybe you make a different pt?

the title is badly written as its ambiguous
