A "good" gm will have <b>done</b> good/great things
to have earned that adjective. Dan did get Gabe,
but his constitutional inertia cost at least 2 weeks
durimg which time Gabe could have been the difference
in 3 or 4 blown saves/holds in a 7 game losing streak.
So far, O'Brien has demonstrated that action is the last
of whatever options may be available.
DO may <b>become</b> a great gm. I hope so.
He is NOT one now as far as any fair-minded evaluation
is concerned because there is a non-existent sample size
What I see so far, is the rhetoric of a first class
bser, classic cya organizational instincts and
a Connie Mack/Carl Lindner disregard for fan accountability.
The next 45 days will go a long way toward fleshing out
an 'opportunities' sample size.
Nothing would make me happier than to have
a table load of crow to banquet on come Aug 1.
