Or so the saying goes…

Epstein has hit the mark WAY more often than he’s missed. Brian Cashman and the Yankees may have won this most recent deal. But it was Epstein that parlayed players like Jeff Samardzija, Scott Feldman and Paul Maholm into a strong roster that won a World Series. We trusted the process, the plan–and it paid off.

The first five years of the Epstein era were indeed successful and leaves all of us with high hopes of what comes next. Could we be talking about a possible dynasty? Maybe. But remember this, everyone wants to see a dynasty–until it happens. Then they want to see it torn down. The transition from “Lovable Losers” to dynasty will be non-existent. Do we have any issues with that? No, I didn’t think so.
