    It’s going to go away and we will have a vaccine by the end of the year.

    That article is one way to get run out of the industry, just like McNeil did with his comments.

    Interesting how there were few comments about this. With how involved the players are with the FO, I wouldn’t think TLR is very popular with the team’s culture. Bernstein had some good points and a nice rant on his show about things TLR said over the last decade about analytics, being pro-flag and against Kaepernick’s protests.

    My mistake, thank you for explaining.

    Who said a discussion had to be about winning? It’s about an exchange of ideas and an interesting perspective with lots of good minds on this board.

    AJ Hinch: does it matter to you that he cheated?

    Let the record show that these posters do not support a Hinch hire. Baron, Harold’s Leg Lift, 35thstreetswarm, YourWhatHurts, JoshPR, black jack, Green Line, Jack Parkman, Blackout Friday.

    AJ Hinch: does it matter to you that he cheated?

    My vote should be: Yes, it bothers me somewhat, but I think he is among the most qualified for the job and towards meeting the goal of taking the team to the next level.

    There are fair points on the cheating scandal, but Hahn has to address those in the interview process. What it boils down to for me is that you hire the best person available and I think that is Hinch, going off of what Stone has said.

    Will you and others quit following the team then and go meatball like Bears fans are with Nagy?

    Then bring on the usual suspects and hire Hurdle or Bochy, get Francona out of his deal or hire Alomar, Jr. This kind of move smells like the Maddon move and so the best available manager is...?

    Is Sandy Alomar, Jr. the guy for today’s baseball game though? I guess we won’t know if he knows analytics better than Hinch or Cora but it is worth considering. I sincerely doubt that they’ll allow something like that cheating scandal to happen again but that is on Hahn to raise during the interview process and gauge the risk of as well.

    Managerial Candidates List

    I’m not sure why people on this board are dragging out the previous generation of managers, people that have been passed up for manager jobs at the MLB level, are mentioning guys from the minor leagues and are dismissing two of the best candidates in Cora and Hinch, but parting ways with Renteria doesn’t seem to signal they are hiring anyone that isn’t going to take them to the next level. Aside from the negative perception of the cheating issue with Cora and Hinch, is there anything else that disqualifies either of them from getting this team to the next level?

    Reform could come in a few different ways, reduced pensions, stopping double dipping, capping pensions, getting rid of the 3% COLA and replacing it with something else or keeping pace with current payments but changing to a new 401(k) like system. I want teachers I know to get a retirement, but the pension system as it is now just isn’t sustainable.
