If Alu actually is a bit better and is a regular 3rd baseman, it sounds like they are optimistic / delusional about Garcia and Thomas, and that they mentally think Ruiz, Smith, Garcia, Abrams, possibly Alu, plus Hassell and Thomas gets them close, then you keep on integrating guys like Wood, Green, House, etc... as they develop.
This is all wildly optimisti

Alu is Lombardozi
Garcia has to hit 30 homers or win a batting title to justify his miserable defense.
Ruiz is a slap hitter who will only play about 120 games
Thomas is a light hitting corner OFer
Abrams is Dee Gordon without the PEDs

That gets you, maybe, 68 wins.

Wood has an enormous hole in his swing and was exposed as soon as he went somewhere you could spin a breaking ball

Green's hole is so enormous, he's probably Joey Gallo

House? Who is that? The 18 year old with a debilitating back injury? He's never going to play a full season for the Nats
