I don't know: just thinking out loud. Perhaps the problem is that Wayne has too many yes-men who cave to his obviously very wrong instincts too often. Maybe Macha is smart enough to school him. I doubt it, but it's possible. And if Wayne is being kept around, I want him being as well-informed as he can be.
I really think the Reds FO has a culture where being a baseball guy gets you way too much slack on your rope. It's kind of a fraternity mentality where being a brother counts a little more than what you bring to the table.
