"(Building a good farm system) is the only way I know for Kansas City to win. The problem is that this way takes tremendous patience and it's easy to abandon the plan. The team starts losing, and you want to trade away prospects to win a few more games. A prospect goes through a bad stretch, you wonder if maybe you were wrong about him. The thing I kept thinking was, 'We're doing this the right way. We're doing it with good people. At the end of the day we're going to win.'"

Dayton Moore in the SI BFSE article from a year ago. I found this quite intriguing, since we were considering trading away a lot of our prospects for a pitcher or two earlier in the offseason. I think that this is the way to go, and that Dayton has done a good job not trying to "win now".
