Re: Dave Dombrowski New Red Sox President

I don't think he's been nearly as good in Detroit in recent years as he's heen made out to be. His whole MO revolves around overpaying for free agents he wants, and then emptying the farm every year to supplement them at the trade deadline. It worked great for awhile, but their ability to do that every year revolved around their ability to get great talent late in the first round by going way over slot to sign the unsignable guys who would always fall. Since they changed the draft rules and he stopped being able to steal guys that way the farm has gone dry as he's otherwise drafted poorly.
