    Re: Grade Our Owner - Mr "Win Now"

    To elaborate a little further on my earlier post, I think the 2006 season did more harm than good. It tricked Bob into thinking we were closer than we actually are. He got a little bit of "pennant fever." A 90 loss season probably would have been better that year, so he could have said to himself "Man, this team has a LONG ways to go, and we need to rebuild."

    How do you grade an owner? Um, he owns the team and doesn't make it impossible for the GM and/or manager to succeed... I guess that's harder than it looks, so I give Bob an 'A'! Really, I don't think it would be so hard for a person with a normal sized ego to be a successful baseball team owner, but then none of the owners have normal sized egos.
