So are ya judging the current regime on the current roster, the players who are gone that were acquired by the other regime or are you judging the current on the future?
I'm judging Dolan & those around him by the players acquired since Dolan bought the team. Why should they get credit for CC, Victor & others who were in the system when Dolan bought the team?
I will say that Cabrera and Kipnis, Choo and Santana and Masterson, Perez and Pestano were the product of this regime, no?
They've missed like the other regime missed (Alex Cole, Mark Whiten, Glenallen Hill long term deals if I recall correctly) but the nucleus of this team was put together by this regime and there is quality there.
I didn't say there was no quality, but we're looking at another rebuild under this regime because some of the quality is close to walking & we have 1 top prospect in the minors.
The former regime brought in HOF-like players in Thome, Manny, Belle, CC, Omar & Robbie. Money played a factor in just 1...Robbie, so small market conditions can't be used for this regime not being able to bring in better talent.
