Doesn't sound like our approach in the past, but I hope how I translated it is how they are really trying to approach the situation.
To me, it sounds like he's saying "We don't want another Redden/Drury/Gomez situation." As in, it's not fair to sign a guy to fill a role he isn't suited for and then expect him to fill that role.

I dunno, maybe that's just me, but if I'm right that begs the question: Are they actually smart enough to know that?
