With so little drama to be found in the final month's games, the MLB regular season is going a bit stale. The playoffs will rekindle fans' passion, but for now, many are wondering how their team fell into such disrepair and how it can be fixed.
Sometimes, being aggressive during the offseason is just what a team needs to do to succeed. At other times, though, patience is the wiser course. Some teams acknowledge their need to improve certain areas, but do not have the means to do it fast. Such is life in the harsh capitalist world of big-league baseball.
For any number of reasons, then, teams can sometimes find that the winter slides by without their having made any major additions or subtractions. Some teams hum with rumors and then ignite with action every December. These 10 squads, however, will have quiet hibernations between October and April.
