My guess is that Cast gave Wayne one more chance to build a winning team.
Cast opened up the wallet to get Dusty and Cordero. Cast was willing to eat salaries of previous mistakes.
In hindsight, look at the moves Wayne made last winter, other than Cordero.
Hamilton for Volquez may turn out to be a good trade (too early), but that's clearly a trade which hurts the short term contention chances. Maybe it helps longterm, but that's not the kind of move Cast wanted.
I wonder if Wayne bit the bullet and traded for Haren, a setup man,and a RH bat if it would've saved his job.
Well, at least now Princeton doesn't have to worry about Wayne making a desperation move to save his job. Sorry Wayne, but you are the Weakest Link, Goodbye!
