First of all, I know it won't happen, but I'll be the first to say it. It would be one thing if Chip Hale had taken over and we wouldn't expect any more than an Al Pedrique caretaker finish to the season. Seriously, c'mon, we passed over Gibby and Brett Butler for this? And, (yes, I know I've already bitched about this to no avail), but a multi-year deal? Seriously, we're not going into 2010 with Hinch in the driver's seat, right? J. Byrnes is going to play puppet master this year and then realize what a fool he's been, correct? Seriously, we look like complete %$*?># to the rest of the league right now, I mean it's one thing to develop players, but who can take a front office guy seriously as a manager, ex-player or not. I can't get Price's comments out of my head, he was spot on. Hindsight, looks like a horrible move, not saying I predicted it, but can't have been any worse with Melvin. Agree, disagree, go for it. We all know it's the elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about.
