    The idea that they’re talking about shifting to a GM search while Scott is still employed tells me that he won’t be employed much longer. They liked him a lot prior to the DUI.

    I don’t think...

    Same. Replays and high-definition cameras have exposed just how bad these guys are at their job, and it's time to move on. Whether this guy just missed the call, or he wanted to "be the guy" in that...

    If the Mets want him to stay, he'll stay. We will offer him whatever he wants, and we already know he's reasonable. Yes, he will want the bag, and we'll give it to him.

    So let's wait and see.

    That's fair. I would prefer him gone, as well. But Cohen finds himself in the position of being an outsider who doesn't know who to hire or how to go about finding the right person. So he's reliant...

    I'm pretty sure Rojas disproved the "robot manager" theory this past season. He was making moves based on R/R and L/L matchups, not advanced metrics. He hit for guys who murdered lefties because they...

    I have been on record saying that Brodie was a ****ing idiot, but Sandy came in and ****ed it up worse than he found it. The difference is we know Sandy was capable of building something approaching...

    I had heard somewhere, maybe an official statement or maybe just reporting, that Sandy was headed to the business-side of the org after a POBO was hired. If that's the case then I can't see anyone...

    If the tweets are correct, he's looking to buy a team rather than run one for somebody else. I accept that as a legitimate reason, rather than an "Ew, no" brush off.

    That said, if you're right,...

    Mickey was stupider than Rojas. He did dumb **** like screwing up the lineup card...twice. But Rojas, while a smart guy, had absolutely no feel for the game. He was basically on rails, and when the...

    There is talk that Rojas was too player-friendly. It’s possible that this is an example of that.

    Alderson had been our GM before. I find it hard to believe that he suddenly decides to become Mr...

    Red Sox brought back Cora. Mets should bring back Beltran.

    Though honestly I have no idea if he’d be any good. I just think it’s dumb that he’s out when all other parties are working again.

    Starting to reek of Dolan-itis. Cohen is smarter, obviously, but cronyism (or nepotism, whatever the **** you want to call it) is a thing no matter the IQ.

    I'm sure "make the decision on Rojas" is a polite way of saying he will be the one to fire Rojas. No POBO would resign him anyway, so it's not like he's undermining the next guy.

    Scott's tenure...

    I said they’re [i]used[/] interchangeably. Like how “literally” is used to mean “figuratively” nowadays. Cronyism is more correct because it more precisely describes the situation. Nepotism could...

    You’re the one who’s splitting hairs. Z and I both used cronyism, which is a more precise word to use for putting your friends in positions of power. Sure, nepotism can colloquially refer to...

    Both cronyism and nepotism are irrespective of qualifications. The difference between the two concepts is who gets the favoritism. Nepotism refers to family: nepote, the Italian word the phrase is...

    That's how I feel about it. I think riding bull runs is probably not a bad strategy with crypto, as long as you can get in early, but I'm definitely not selling my nut. I'm holding it until it either...

    Even with a new contract, his obligation to TBS might double next year, as their coverage doubles. It's likely that we will see a lot less of Ron going forward.

    I don't even know if Megill is a starter, honestly. At this point he's probably better coming out of the pen. But yeah, nobody would be that upset at Walker if he were pitching 4th or 5th. And he...

    No, it's cronyism. They get used interchangeably sometimes, but nepotism generally refers to the hiring or privileging of relatives, whereas cronyism means doing so for friends and associates.
