    It's not my intention to slight TC here. I'm simply pointing out that there are two sides to the story and it's based upon one poster's opinion. Based on one opinion, I'm willing to keep an open mind.

    Great point. Although Sabes and I keep in touch and still have a good relationship. He just happens to quit most things he starts. Browning on the other hand... no excuse for showing up to games in the 4th, 5th and 7th innings. Cancelling travel days so HE could go golfing. Telling stories about illegal activities and acting like it's something you are supposed to do. Terrible role model.

    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    Aside from that, I don't know too many talented people with expertise who'd work an entry-level position even it was in a well-run organization.

    Think about it, you make good money as a baseball player and then those that have something to contribute back to the game are asked to work for peanuts in backwaters where they're sometimes not even involved in prospect development. Why bother? It's like asking someone who's been on an executive board to sweep up. It seems like a perfect way to drive away excellence and reward dogged mediocrity.
    Keep in mind that a growing number of ex-major leaguers were and are managers in the Frontier League. What I found most amazing is that NONE of the big leaguers who were managing in the Frontier League when I was there wanted anything to do with "Browny". He had already destroyed his rep with those guys a long time ago.
