He brought people in and in 4 years, made the world series.... a few years later, we made the playoffs again. Most GM's have a low % of draftees playing for them, since they draft something like 40 or more rounds? Of course you won't have a ton of drafted players that ever see the MLB team.

Dombrowski moves out vets before he knows the kids are good enough, gives up on prospects too quickly instead of letting them develop, and over values what he has on the roster based on one good year, or even half a year. Fat Jhonny is a career .267 hitter, and although is power numbers are down, expecting him to hit close to .300 again was stupid. Thinking that Raburn would magically hit well all year when he never has was even worse. Scherzer and Porcello weren't likely to all of a sudden figure out how to be consistent, Avila and Boesch are Young and you never know how a young guy will come back after having a decent year, and Young is what he's always been.
