Waiting for Phil Wood's response.

Quote from: Phil Wood
I also wrote recently that, in my opinion, it's silly to attach the "cheap" charge to the Nationals inasmuch as no one really knows how much any team spends on player development. Simply looking at the big league player payroll is only part of the picture. Someone wrote in suggesting that most clubs probably spend about the same amount on player development. All I know is this: I've spoken with dozens of big league scouts over the past 3 decades, most of whom have worked for multiple clubs. I'll respect their confidences, but I can say many have described wide disparities in player development expenditures from one franchise to another. None quoted specific figures, but they could tell simply through observation.
