It seems he wants to prove he can be a non-checkbook GM

I'd keep smiling and take the paycheck if I were him.

Understandable, that Soriano deal was bad all around, and he looks the fool because what ownership wanted.

Looks like Steinbrenner's kids want to be a lot more hands-on than George was, at least since the 70s.

Doesn't matter if you're the Royals or the Yankees, ownership doing the GM and scouting department's job is a bad idea.

Great, let's see him move on and prove himself. I wonder how many teams would give him a chance?

It's a bad idea unless you have the checkbook to put All-Stars at most positions, including several spots in the starting rotation and pen. Then, you don't really need a GM if you constantly do that.

While it could set them up someday to have little young talent developed on their own, it looks like they will continue to shell out big $$$ to whomever they want.

If they don't win the W.S. this year, he might be able to experience life without the checkbook anyway.

Makes sense because even with the checkbook he has made some bad moves.
