I'll be glad to answer: I've always been of the belief that the GM makes the roster and the manager manages it. Walt signed Valdez and wrote up the contract for Cairo. Dusty for sure had input, but I find it hard to believe Jocketty is giving Dusty everything he wants considering those decisions likely come back on him more than Dusty. This is entirely my foggy perception of what may or may not happen behind closed doors though.
