This team has about 100% more direction than it did at this time last year. Even though he's not my choice, we have a real manager, not a guy they just threw in there because he was likeable. First base may be manned by a kid who can hit and field and is young. We have a shortstop and a backup. We have an outfield who could conceivably hit over 100 HR's. Only the pitching needs improvement. Same as last year.
But spending big bucks on a proven manager, our first choice or not, with a track record of winning shows me they are going to try to do this right now. If you're going to spend money like that on a manager, you have to follow that up by getting him the players, or you look like a joke
I agree. Those two created the monster Narron and waited too long to make a move (even extended him), so they should have been mad at themselves, not crying. It became more obvious when a nobody named Macklanin took the same team to a winning record. Oh well.
Mack did a good job, and I hope he gets a chance somewhere.
Right now, another no name, no track record, "interim" manager was the last thing this team needed.....maybe that's not fair, maybe that's not justified, but it's business.
Mama wasn't happy....hopefully Dusty makes her happy.
