I interpreted the story differently. Chaim had a plan coming into the season. Due to play on the field, he is likely shifting gears more to a GFIN strategy. My take is that Bloom might want to deal for Scherzer, but that is a big departure from the plan....and ownership is pushing him to go ahead and do it.I'm just not feeling a massive add here. Ownership brought Bloom in for a reason, and pressuring him to be something he is not doesnt seem like it would end well.
Still say bullpen and 1B is as far as he goes, but maybe I will be shocked.
This is what I would like to believe anyway. I do not see a scenario where Henry or the like tell Chaim to "go get player x".
Either way, Chaim has done a tremendous job keeping the lid on whatever they are working on.
