Bob said that last season's disaster played a big part in it too.
I think it was mighty patient of Bob to give Wayne more offseason to fix things.
Let's face it, Wayne spent basically the entire winter picking up Volquez and little else after winning the Cordero bidding war. That's not going to impress Cast after coming off a 72 win season. It's a clear case of Wayne not implementing the Boss' plan. I'm surprised Wayne wasn't canned at the end of last season. Bob has been amazingly patient. He sees this year's team for what it is.. only marginally better than last year, and a team that will not win 81 games (.500) without changes.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
