Mark Dominik, spoke with Gary Shelton of the St.Pete Times, while nothing revealing or candid was said. He reemphasized building for the long term sustainability of the franchise.There is still a long way to go for anyone who has already hit the panic button. With free agency only 48 hours old, the team can still add valuable pieces to help shape the 2009 roster. Like I have stated previously, Dominik is letting the market settle rather then paying mediocre talent substantial money for very little return on the teams investment.
“I understand,” general manager Mark Dominik said Saturday. “I don’t blame them. People want answers today. I would only tell fans that we are building this team, not only for one year or two years, but for beyond.”
Dominik wouldn’t talk about his negotiations, but he remained upbeat.
“I’m not disappointed,” he said. “We’re only 48 hours into this thing.”
