Cincinnati Reds GM Dick Williams 2017 review 2018 preview

CE: After this past season, how close do you think you guys are compared to 2016 to being the next winning Reds team, and how does that color your offseason plans?

DW: The lesson we’re all collectively learning is the difficulty of putting exact timetables. Some people are coming quicker than we thought and some people are coming slower. It’s really difficult to say when it will all come together. I had a guy run it the other day,  we were the fourth-youngest average age for offensive players this year, and we were the youngest team in baseball for pitchers, average age, for the season. It’s mostly prospects that are driving those young ages. That tells me these next couple years, we will have a very good opportunity to grow into that success.

It's a little weird with a GM named Dick Williams who is of course, not the Dick Williams who first comes to mind. I guess that's to be expected given that the leadoff hitter is named Billy Hamilton.
