- Select an owner who ideally will defer all baseball decisions to a team president/CEO (Stan Kasten?)
- Allow that individual to assemble a group of individuals who share the same philosophy of player valuation. This is important with regards to player development and scouting.
- Assign one person to speak for the group. On the surface, this person will serve in the traditional General Manager's role, but their ultimate responsibility is to act as a sort of press secretary for the team's roster moves.
Could this work? In theory, it's possible. While identifying a person willing to serve as a figurehead GM would be difficult given the disposable nature of the role, the greatest challenge would putting together a group of individuals willing to put ego aside and allow things to operate without the spotlight on them.
