An astute FrontBurnervian makes an astute (though not unique) observation:
And the general manager of the Milwaukee Brewers? Doug Melvin, the GM who was in charge when the Rangers won their 3 division titles and the man who made savvy deals for pitchers like Burkett, Hill, Stottlemyre and players like Clayton and Ziele. Melvin also has a number of ex-Rangers on the Brewers roster. It’s not always about the money, it’s how it gets spent.
