Glass- Half Full or Half Empty

Despite being the "savior" of baseball for the city of Kansas City, David Glass has received his fair share of bashing. Some people believe that Mr. Glass is only in it for the profit. People have constantly  called him cheap and uninterested. I have a very hopeful idea on what I think the real truth is....

It is hard to imagine that the guy who helped turn Wal-mart into the world's largest retailer, would sit back and except finishing last at anything. I think that when Mr. Glass bought the team, he believed that MLB was about to change drastically. He thought that a salary cap would eventually come and that revenue would be shared at a higher rate. This explains why he took the cheap approach for the Baird years, and was waiting for the game to be revolutionized.  This hit a speed bump with the success of small market teams like Florida. When Mr. Glass realized that the league wasn't changing he moved Baird. He hired DM to build his team from the lower levels. As we sit here today, that is just what is happening. Our farm system is full of high priced, highly touted talent that will be arriving in the next couple of years.

Maybe, just maybe, Glass is stock piling cash from each year's profits. When the time is right he will cut loose and throw some serious cash at the missing pieces on his team. Would that be a bad plan, I don't think so!!
