All you need to know about these 2 is really simple.
Wayne got talent for nothing
Walt pays market price or above for it
Wayne paid too much money to try to put out a major league team on the field with little success
Walt ditto, he just works slower
Wayne was proactive
Walt is reactive, almost
Waynes greatest loss was Cantu
Walts greatest loss is Dunn to this point
Wayne started with O'Brien/Bowdens mess
Walt started with a better organization top to bottom and by a lot
Wayne had a 152 - 172 record with said mess
Walt has a 152 - 172 record with a better situation
Wayne did not deal any good prospects
Wayne had poor PR skills
Walt is a master of manipulating the masses thru the media
Wayne trusted only those with evaluation skills because he trusts his evaluation skills
Walt trusts Bavasi and Bonifay and anyone else with an opinion because he knows no better
As far as I can see the only area Walt excels at is comforting the masses, now I can see why Bob hired him.
