Sometimes you have to make a gut call and say "This guy isn't right for the job." Giving the wrong person more time for the sake of stability isn't exactly genius.
After this season, Wayne will have had 3 years and what seems like trillions of dollars in Cincinnati currency at his disposal to improve this team. Seriously, in the past few years he has spent good chunks of change on Harang, Arroyo, Cordero, Gonzalez, Dunn and other smaller sized amounts on guys like Stanton. Has any Cincy GM in recent times been able to spend like this? And where is it getting them?
At what point do you say "You know Wayne, maybe you work best as an Asst GM?"
