@JayHawkFanToo That payroll figure I posted was for the team they would have if they just kept everyone. I posted it, like you asked.
I don’t think that management sucks, per se. I think ownership has limitations. And I think Dayton made great moves in his first 2 years of his time in KC.
I also don’t think that a WS win should mean we don’t look at managment’s decisions. Essentially every move made isn’t able to be analyzed for 6 years. We are seeing what bad decisions 6 years ago look like today. And it is clear that we have been unable to produce a major league product through either the draft or poor development.
