Re: God Bless America.........haynes released!
In all seriousness, I think DanO needed the extra time to think this transaction over
and decide the corresponding move. (Whether it's bringing up Matthews or whatever).
That's one thing that scares me. It takes DanO over a month to make a nonbrainer move
like releasing Haynes and calling up the best retread at AAA.
The guy is not going to perform well at trade deadline time when decisions need to be
made quickly. He'll probably do ok in a situation like Reitsma, when he has all winter
to shop him around and mull over the decisions, but I don't think he'll do well under
At least DanO still has a pulse though, I was wondering...
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
