For TB to work, they need better scouts to keep the influx of talent coming and better minor league coaches to make sure they are ready. If either if those is just average, they are the royals/pirates/Os/name your perpetual bottom feeding low budget team. I'd rather not bank on that stradegy here of it can be avoided
I agree, the Tampa reference is a red herring to point out that it is possible to build a good team without a high major league payroll, while that is true I'm not buying the idea that this ownership group is building the infrastructure necessary to pull that off. Standard Natitude bullcrap, claiming that there is hidden spending going on behind the scenes; these are the same clowns who weren't paying their scouts expense reports on time.
