Well I'm not here to brag but a little birdie told me where I can get Joe D's original birth certificate.
First, getting back to the initial point, they are spending resources right now. A boatload committed toward player development. To simply throw blanket
what does that have to do with the argument at hand?
They can have 100 affiliates for all I care - if none of them are producing quality, MLB-ready talent, it doesn't mean a damn.
They fielded two GCL teams during 2014. They are adding a third affiliate in the Appalachian League for the upcoming season. Those require lots of capital.
$50M. After taxes that's $100M 😐
