    Where will DanO end up?

    I figure someone will hire him since he's been in the business so long. My guess will be Atlanta or Philly.

    He'll land on his feet - but his days of ever being a GM again are over. Scouting director or something like that.

    Someplace warm I hope.
    This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    Some place where he can be non-commital and ride the fence for the rest of his career and not have any pressure to win. Watch for a Romano or Machado signing wherever it is.

    Because he's such a savvy talent evaluator?

    What made you pick these two, Chip?

    I can't for the life of me picture him in the Atlanta organization.

    And someone mentioned scouting. He's such a poor judge of talent that I can't see him going in that direction either.

    I think he's a perfect fit for Colorado.

    Or as a designated hugger for Casey in Pittsburgh.

    Perhaps a token of gratitude for his contributions to the Braves and Phillies organizations?
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

    Mostly because those are the two organizations he's done most of his business with. Also I think people in the Braves organization think he's a good baseball guy from what I've read in Scouts Honor.

    The reds should have reassigned him to being an user at GABP.

    Well, the San Diego Padres recently hired Ed Wade as a scout, and he was arguably worse at evaluating talent than O'Brien.

    Maybe he could drive a truck with Doug Heffernen at UPS or whatever it is?

    I really think he's going to have a tough time. I'm not just saying that to be mean. He's shattered any illusion that he was the brains behind either the Rangers or Astros.
    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
