Re: O'Brien fired! Kullman interm GM, announcement at 5pm
Not to throw rain on the parade, but I'm a bit concerned about how all this will play out if Piniella's hiring in 2007 is a fait accompli. If Lou is Big Bob's guy, this GM may end up emasculated between the owner and the manager.
Castellini needs to make sure he is empowering people to make the decisions they are qualified to make, and to make sure those decisions are supported according to a clear chain of command.
