    I'm a big supporter of Wayne, but how he handles the roster with Ross coming off the DL, the young guys who could be in the bullpen that are in AAA, and the current Juan Castro situation will be defining, IMO...

    I'll stay away from this thread as much as possible because I seem to ignite any Wayne discussion into a 4 alarm fire. But I think it is obvious which side I am on.

    6-8 in a season when just about everyone predicted .500. Good lord.

    He'll make the year, but I'm not looking for an extension any time soon.

    No doubt whatsoever, my friend.

    But I'm coming around to your side.

    Yeah, no point in firing Wayne midseason. Just make sure someone has veto power to any misguided contract extensions he wants to give out. Wouldn't want Wayne to resign Cormier or Castro again on his way out.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    It would be really cool if there was some sort of "percentage meter" that would reflect the changing amount of power between Krivsky and Jocketty.

    The big league team is in a tailspin.

    But, (knock on wood) no major arm injuries in the minors and lots of prospects progressing through on schedule.

    Its not like its been ALL bad (see: O'Brien, Dan-O)

    I think Wayne has done fine. The team was just in a lot worse shape than everyone said. Lots of change needed. Some money to spend but not a huge amount by baseball standards. So Wayne had a big overhaul on his hands.

    The pitching looks better to me. There are good young guys in the system. To win soon, the offense needs to be bolstered promptly. And some major decisions on young talent -- every prospect is not a keeper. I think Wayne understands this.

    And Jocketty is right there, I'm sure he's involved in personnel decisions.

    Wayne should be safe for awhile but has more work to do.

    And it would be REALLY cool if it could go next to those Pepsi smokestacks in the outfield!
