In just 4 years, Detroit Tigers General Manager Dave Dombrowski turned one of the worst franchises in professional sports into one of the best. I thought this portion of a recent Detroit Free Press column really summed up why:
Early in Dave Dombrowski’s tenure as Tigers general manager, I asked him about the importance of having a clear plan, which I thought was lacking under the Randy Smith regime. His response was telling – more telling than I realized then. He shifted the conversation away from the word “plan.”
“It comes down to making good decisions,” he said.
