That's not typically how grades work. C is baseline--no improvement/no regression, net. D is regression. F is severe regression.
It's all relative, FCB. I contend that if a team in the Reds position did nothing to improve themselves during an offseason, that's a complete failure.
I know how typical grades work. But baseball isn't a typical situation.
