Dunno, CE, I think Girardi has the chops to work with a young team and the patience to help them improve. I see him as being a solution, and someone that can help them realize some potential. Not pennant winning potential (until talent improves) but develop the potential that exists.
Girardi turned down a offer from one trainwreck of an organisation with a rich history because he wants to put his name in the hat for the Yanks job this offseason. It's probably reasonable to assume he'd turn down offers from other trainwreck organisations with rich histories (not mentioning any particular organisation whose games are blacked out on mlb.tv if you live within 150 miles of Cincinnati).
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
What is Girardi's record as a ML manager? What was Narron's record his first 162 games as a red. A lot of people are going gaga over Girardi with only one average year.
