Re: Jim Bowden on Cold Pizza
Knocking Jimbo is like saying a lot of people hated Paul Brown. Look what you got after him.
12 long, long years of embarrassment....and there is NO guarentee that that won't happen with the Reds.
DanO was awful.....and I am NOT impressed with Krivisky so far....not even close.
Deal away WMP so that we can have Dunn falling all over himself in LF and Scott friggin Hatteberg playing 1B? Are you kidding me? And we have to listen to Jerry friggin Narron try to convince us that Hatteberg was a steal and he is a true professional? Come on.....this guy would be selling used cars right now if not for the Reds.....and he is the Opening Day starter? oui.
The severe problem with firing Jimbo was that is was NEVER about improving the front office....is was a purely emotional and political reaction.
It was the same exact mistake made for exactly the same reasons when the Reds fired Pinella and when they fired Davey Johnson....both of whom have yet to be replaced by a guy worthy of carrying either one's jock strap.
So don't be so sure that things HAVE TO get better anytime soon. soP should be enough of an object lesson for Cincinnati sports fans that the grass is NOT always greener.
I still, personally rue the day Jimbo was axed......but those of you who thought he needed to go may take some more time of this embarrassing mess that has been here since before you join me in that posture.
