Hopefully, it didn't cost you too much, because you are tight with Bud and got a good, solid discount. But regardless, now you've got to hire a GM to help you compete.
A few facts:
-- You're loaded, but you're also stingy. Your financial whiz kid bean counter tells you that for 2008, a $80M major league payroll will still make you some money. What happens after that is anyone's guess.
-- You're smart, and know that winning makes money, but also that making money is winning.
-- You understand and are committed to player recruitment and development.
-- Your ballpark plays fairly neutral.
So, which of the following young GMs do you take, and why?
