Reminds me of firing Tony Perez 44 games into 1993.
It does. The way I always figured it was that Tony was hired becausee of his ethniticity. Marge was going through some problems for what she said about blacks and this hire would show people whe wasn't a racist pig and it was a good sale to Reds Fans because of Tony's popularity.
However the man who JimBo really wanted to hire was Davey Johnson and he was there all along as a consultant. When JimBo fired Tony, Davey was right there to take over.
But I'm not sure why Bob kept Wayne around if he really wanted Jocketty.

Painful, isn't it?
