Like you said, I think this team is in "win now, cost be damned" mode. I'd expect at least one or two more years of Sather running the show and the team being loaded up with aging vets to try and make a run or two. Then Gorton takes over and rebuilds the team how he wants it. I have to think that he's been promised this job after Sather retires. Otherwise, I can't imagine why he's still around.
Sather IS Rangers management. Dolan was too busy trying to hire Phil Jackson. Who was going to stop Sather from making the MSL trade? Gorton should leave if the plan is to load up and not worry about anything. He will have an impossible job putting this thing back together. Dolan will fire him before he has a chance to build it back up if that philosophy even exists in Rangersland.
