    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.

    Things could change, but I am hearing that Narron will probably be around for the year. Who knows what could change that (such as the team's performance at the beginning of the year), but it looks like that's the way it stands as of now.

    But does Sweet Lou want to be de facto GM? I never really heard that from his Seattle or Tampa Bay days

    I heard a couple of months ago that DOB was long gone when Castellini took over. Not that this was a particularly tough call.....but my source was right again.

    I say this only to reinforce the idea that Castellini probably already has someone at least semi-lined up to replace DOB since he was sure to fire him pretty much the moment he offically got the reins.

    Am I the only one who thinks the new WLW ad is a cheap shot?

    Wow, I just heard the DanO promo on WLW. Not good.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Is the press conference going to be on any TV?

    Uh yeah I gotta think the FO moves and Castellini taking over is a morale boost for the players as well as the fans.

    The guy that just called into WLW said that he thinks this move was wrong and paints Castellini as an "egomaniac."
