Ownership has seemingly given him a blank check and he has no notable success
To show for it. 9 years and a lot of money and big moves later and they’ve only made the playoffs twice and made very little noise.
He’s compiled a lot of good players but overpaid and not really developed a culture. Sometimes the best deal is the one not made. He traded Trea Turner for Wil Myers, Max Fried for a year of Justin Upton, took on part of a terrible Matt Kemp contract and gave up Zach Eflin and Yasmani Grandal.
Overpaid Yu Darvish and probably Boegarts.
We’ll see how the more recent prospects they gave up pan out. Their best pitcher is Snell and he’s a free agent and their best hitter is Soto and he only has a year left on his deal. They have 5 years of Darvish left and Boegarts and Machado are both likely to begin their decline soon if they haven’t already and have tons of years left on their deals.
