It will be a long time. Not only the major league roster is a mess, but the minors are a mess to.

4-7 years. They traded away a lot of big players over the past few years;(Hunter Pence, Roy Oswalt, Micheal Bourn, Lance Berkman) but they have completely re-built their farm system. With that takes time to get all those future guys ready for the MLB and make them able to compete at an MLB level. I think once that happens then they will be a great team.

I say in about 5 years. They need to build up a farm system and then let them develop.

They need to rebuild from within and right now there minor leagues suck. I say it will be awhile before they contend again, but if the select the correct #1 picks it could build there system up quick.

Give them about 6 losing seasons and good draft picks and they will develop there minor league system before they show any signs of getting back in the race in the NL Central.

I would say less than 3 years due to the new owner not wanting to be a loser.
