For our next book club we will discuss Alex Speier’s account of how the Boston Red Sox built the team that won a world championship in 2018. How has building a championship team changed? How did former Detroit Tigers president Dave Dombrowski fulfill a win-now mandate, and at what cost to the team’s farm system and future? How will this team be remembered in the shadow of sign-stealing scandals? What lessons are there for teams like the Tigers seeking to build a contender? Come ready to discuss.
