"Billy is in a small market, so he has challenges, right? He goes with young players and he also works the waiver wire effectively. Also, he trades players like Gio Gonzalez; he was forced to trade him for some younger players. He's traded away some good pieces," Duquette said. "We have to have a strong farm system, so we have a foundation to make trades … Our strategy is to have a good farm system and add the best players to the big leagues through the farm system. And have deep scouting and be aggressive in international scouting, do a good job in domestic scouting and also look for value in the free agent market."
