now that the dust has settled, I don't get the multi-year deal for Hinch. Doesn't he have to prove that he can manage first? I get the caretaker manager part of it after the start we've had, but why more than that? Don't we want to motivate him to perform? Now he can extend his learning curve out a few more years. Not to mention the fact that if guys like Gibby or Brett Butler feel passed over, we're chancing losing those guys down the road at some point. (Price's recent comments re Melvin's firing etc. point in this direction).
