Opinion: Fans Should Not Put Too Much Stock In Dombrowski’s Denial Of Olney Report

For all Dombrowski’s insistence on characterizing Olney’s report as “inaccurate,” he still did not close the door on re-signing Scherzer. He has left that possibility open all offseason even as he has downplayed it.
