"You can see the outlines of a build here, with the returns for the stars the Bruce Sherman/Derek Jeter group inherited beginning to reach the majors. The catch is that they didn’t get enough back in those deals, have mostly been worked on the trade market, and their drafts have been disastrous for too long. Finally separating from Michael Hill was a long overdue move, and new GM Kim Ng brings decades of experience to her first decision-making role. It will be a year or two, at least, before it’s fair to judge her based on the standings."
