Re: Rick Sweet on Jay Bruce
I've always liked Rick Sweet, even before he managed here in Portland. He has the gumption to ask and then re-ask when he's not getting the results about promoting a guy he recognizes as being ready. Glad the REDS have him.
Rob Neyer: "Any writer who says he'd be a better manager than the worst manager is either 1) lying (i.e. 'using poetic license') or 2) patently delusional. Which isn't to say managers don't do stupid things that you or I wouldn't."
