    They just weren't up at the podium with the new ownership, and I don't know why they would have been. It was Castellini's day.

    I expected as much, but didn't say anything because I hadn't actually seen the conference.

    DanO won't be fired; he just won't be asked to return. 2006 being a lost season falls on Castellini's head, IMO. He'll get no free pass from me.

Castellini spoke about how badly he wanted to get control in November when he could still have an impact on this season, which I read to mean "when I could still get a GM in place before the winter meetings".
    I thought the same thing. It's obvious that O'Brien is gone. I think he knows it and I'm nearly certain he will resign before the season starts. Let's see how that prediction plays out.

    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    The area DanO did pretty well in is in his two Drafts. I know he got slammed pretty good on this board for his picks this year but his picks have made him look pretty good so far. Maybe the new ownership should leave him in place until after the draft?

    Punishment? After all, wouldn't you feel like you were being punished if you had to work with DanO every day and listen to his drivel?

    IIRC, most of the people on here who follow such things thought this year's draft was pretty good. The year before that was a different story.

    Actually, he's a produce salesman.

    I guess that's comparing apples to oranges, though.

    Well, I read it on some post here. I guess I jumped at the idea being true since I want DanO gone so bad.

    Sorry.

    Who knows, maybe with the changes, DanO can turn it around. I won't hold my breath, but miracles happen.

    I went back and read the Draft day Thread and trust me other than Bruce and Ward all the other draft pics people wear scratching their heads or ripping DanO big time. When they picked Wood with the second pick all heck broke loose. People where asking if DanO was trying to get fired. Myself I liked both of his drafts. The only problem I had with them was they where so young and the minors where so dried up that it would take a few more years to see the results.

    If all this is true, then I guess we'll now see just how good (or bad) of a GM DanO really is - if Allen was making, or very influential, in all the decisions.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations
