Best Move – Tough to say. I feel I’ve had a bunch of good solid moves that have dramatically improved my team. I loved the Beckett and Marquez trades, as it gave me one of the top 2 players at those respective positions. Love the Mantalban draft pick, because young, power hitters are great to find, and he’s gonna be a stud, although it was the #2 pick, so not much thought involved. I guess my biggest coup would have to be signing Rijo and Yamaguchi as IFA. I got them both late in the signing period and they turned out to be bargains because everybody else had spent the prospect budget.

Worst Move – By far, signing Ron Barker to a 5-year/$21M contract in season 13. It was my first offseason and my advanced scouting budget wasn’t up to snuff. He appeared to have a lot of potential left, but he flat-lined to his current levels. It has made me gun-shy about signing FA ever since.

Philosophy - Build through the draft, trades, and IFA. Look for contact and Vs. LHP and Vs. RHP in position players, and control and GB/FB ratio in pitchers. When I took over this team, it was one of the worst, if not THE worst in the game. One of my minor league teams had only 1 pitcher. Six seasons later, I’m in the running for a playoff spot, and hoping for a deep playoff run and possible WS championship. Hasn’t had the need to re-stock. Building the team up from the scrap heap to climbing the mountain has been very fun.
