This came out of nowhere to me. I don't love it, but don't hate it either. Just keep Whitt away from the team.
I own a small business, 2 mistakes I will never make again, rehiring someone that was fired & hiring a friend.
People are fired with reason.
Friends feel their entitled.
Was really hoping that AA was going to add to his legend by dragging Felipe Alou/ Tony Larussa out of retirement. Wishful thinking.
Or going in another more progressive direction and hiring a younger Latin manager like Acta or Alomar. Would have made sense with such a heavily Latin line up.
I'm not sure how Gibbons personality will mesh with this group. I will hope for the best but fear the worst. AA is a smart guy so if he feels Gibbons is the best choice for this club then he is.......
What. The. ****.
Wow, I didn't want Tracy or Riggleman either, but wow.
Not even sure what to say. Can't say I'm a fan of this move at all. I REALLY hope AA knows something I don't on this one.
I don't sense that same depth in Deputy Dawg Rasmus.
*Checks watch* ...nope not April Fools.
Well that was an interesting pick. I like it better than Tracy or Riggleman. Totally out of left field though.
He's got the qualifications everybody wants: he's tougher than Farrell, he's experienced, and he's not Jim Tracy. Gibbons did have solid bullpen management. And he used platoons properly unlike a lot of our previous managers.
I'm not sure if I like it yet but it's not Jim Tracy or Riggleman so that'll have to be enough for now.
