We’re taking a week off from talking Royals baseball to look at other rebuilding teams around baseball. Our Max Rieper talks to Luis Davila at Fish Stripes, to discuss the Marlins, Rob Rogacki at Bless You Boys, to discuss the Tigers, and Brett Ballantini at South Side Sox, to discuss the White Sox. Among the topics we discuss:
Will Marlins ownership commit to spending money once they are ready to compete?
Is the Tigers front office up to the task of rebuilding?
Are the White Sox closer than other rebuilding teams to competing and what is their timetable?
Links to some of the things we discussed:
Early criticisms of Derek Jeter as owner of the Marlins
Anthony Fenech’s Detroit Free Press article on the mis-steps of the Tigers front office.
