Re: Now the truth comes out... Jim Bowden was never....
I think both Marge and Lindner didn't really care about the farm system. Both were a lot more interested in selling tickets today. I'd say that all in all, Bowden was a success. He did a lot with with the cards he was dealt.
You can say that Bowden should've lobbied the owners for a long term approach, but we know Margie wouldn't have listened. I doubt Lindner would've listened either, since he was just in as a short term investor.
