Re: How Would You Rate O'Brien's First Year As GM?
DanO has to be given more time. He inherited a mess IMO. He has taken some risks his first year, and has had some successes, and also some mistakes. But it's just too early to tell. But I thik his main objective is to get our pitching straightened out. And not necessarily via FA, but by building up our program in developing young pitching. He has made strides in this area IMO.
But he has to address this BP in the off-season. He has released some players (which is good). Now he must do his homework and fill the voids aptly.
Dano is no Jim Bowden (and thank God!)
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
