  1. Being able to bring his own staff in for the most part is at least a better start to this than Ewing and Boston assuming their normal positions of statue at 1st and waving guy at third sending runners to their deaths.
  2. Now I see where all of the score callers come from. WE NEED DITKA. DITKA WOULDNT ALLOW SUCH AN EMBARRASMENT ON DEFENSE. DITKA WOULD KICK DA DEFENSE IN DA ASS. DITKA WAS DA ONLY WON TO WIN A SUPERBOWL. HE IS DA BEST. RESPECT HIM.
  3. Its the Mike Ditka phenomena. People fall in love with the memory of the manager/coach in charge and forget what that man was. These guys had warts just like what you see now.
  4. If Shildt is hired JR is making the decision based on TLR influencing him. TLR is the gift that keeps on giving.
  5. Or maybe that the front runner isn't one coveted by other teams because he has never coached before and isn't a real candidate by the rest of baseball. What's the rush, make it look like you did a thorough job and hire the inside guy. If we were competing or it was a real candidate they would of locked that person up already.
  6. Hiring Chris Getz for manager would be the equivalent of flipping the bird to the fan base. Robin Ventura 2.0. So much for the rebuild and the competitive window.
  7. So Kenny, I figure Hahn wants Espada. Then you have the wild card. What does the old man want that will over ride everything.
  8. People that are okay with Guillen managing are falling for the Ditka affect. The fond memory of a former manager/coach based on nostalgia versus reality. Do you remember Ozzieball. I mean not the 2005 season, the rest of it. Do you remember his kids and the twitter s%*#. I see some very frustrating baseball and that TWTW crap coming out of hte woodwork. I see fights with umpires, fights with media, and other teams players. I see bunting for no reason. I see nothing that plays into modern baseball.
  9. That's because what Hahn wants means nothing. It's the old owner who really matters.
  10. Look at the original statement by Hahn on the qualifications and then his latest version of that. If an older manager is hired, then you know Kenny and Jerry are truly running it and Hahn is a GM in name alone. Fancy title for the same role he has had in the past. The contract guy. Decisions are made up at a higher level.
  11. This is a bogus random Twitter guy but it would be so Jerry to attach an anchor to a moveable asset to clear payroll limiting the return.
