You have no idea if it is or not.
We just don't know.
However, if a "team of Orioles" is what it takes for them to have full autonomy and ownership butts out, that would easily be whats best for us.
End of the day, if the new GM "group" doesn't have full autonomy, it won't matter who has the job.
Yep, I agree completely.
I'll take the one of the worst baseball minds in the sport with complete autonomy over the best baseball minds in the sport working under the same old Angelos constraints.
Obviously best case would be a brilliant mind working without any strings. But I think the limitations that are placed by those strings are far more damaging to the organization than the limitations in skills and ideas of our past GMs or potential future GMs.
