caulfield12 Posted April 20 Share Posted April 20 The REAL QUESTION is does ownership finally impose some accountability and REMOVE a guy who is not real great at his job/. We have been watching this slow-motion train wreck that has gone on with all sorts of 'different 'plans go on for 8 years now. We have seen several trade where way too much was given up. We waited years to accumulate and start development of prospects only to have them all shipped out for WAY TOO little value. Giving up 4 blue chip prospects for 2 years of Soto was Cray Cray bad.

We’ve seen … Three, arguably four, organizational resets (aka “house cleanings”); wiping out a pretty good farm, rebuilding it, wiping it out again; two suspensions by MLB and a team fine for breaking international scouting rules; losing Luis Castillo because he was about to be suspended for keeping two sets of medical records … And that’s without even mentioning any of his questionable trades and signings, roster construction issues, or interference with managers and lineups. “GM malpractice” is putting it lightly.
