No. The Rangers were in last place in 2007, and made back to back WS in 2009 and 2010

Tigers were putrid in 2003, but were a monster within three years.

This morning in the shower I realized that the Cleveland Indians consciously dismantled what was left of their legendary 90's team after the 2001 season to begin a youth movement that eventually led them to the 2007 ALCS.

But regardless of who invented the tear-down and rebuild, the Nationals successfully executed it at the dawn of a decade in which the strategy went entirely mainstream, being employed even by big market teams.
