Todo lo que Manfred promueve lo hace pensando en el crecimiento del juego y en la protección de un proceso para que sea más transparente. Los equipos siguen invirtiendo y firmando jugadores en el país” External link

Rafael Perez dijo ( about Rob Manfred ) : “El béisbol es un juego de números, y los equipos tienen que firmar muchos para que lleguen pocos. Aquí no se va a reducir la cantidad de firmas -porque hay un proceso de agencia libre después del draft- al tiempo que se hará más transparente el proceso de entrada de los jugadores internacionales al profesionalismo. Todo lo que Manfred promueve lo hace pensando en el crecimiento del juego y en la protección de un proceso para que sea más transparente. Los equipos siguen invirtiendo y firmando jugadores en el país” External link
