Re: Pros and Cons of Keeping Miley
I'm really not a fan of Miley. He's definitely below average in managing, and is the type of manager that will cost a team at least a few games every year.
Things like batting Castro #2, bringing Reidling in a tie game and letting him give up 7 runs,etc.
If anything, Miley is a symbol of the "old ways". Really, it's a joke that he got the job, primarily because Marty campained for him. Allen and Lindner have no business picking the manager. It should be completely DanO's call.
But as long as Dave is willing to work cheap, I bet he'll hang around 3-4 years.
Then he'll be the convienent scapegoat when this phase of rebuilding doesn't work out.
Oh, how nice it would be not to have to settle for mediocrity.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
