True. That's a total 180 from the previous regimes. The past groups were very reluctant to let a player stay at a level and dominate it to build up their trade value. It seemed as though as soon as a player showed even an inkling of succeeding in one league, he was pushed to another to see if he could handle that. Not a very good idea if you're trying to establish some value in those players along the way.
Or if you're trying to turn them into good players. Now, I'm generally OK with "challenge thy hitters," but the Peter Principle is a terrible way to develop pitchers.
For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who don't believe, no proof is possible
