Still waiting. What's that old insult about a person who can't get their jank together? He/she would muck up a one-car funeral?
Welcome to Nats Town. Get your Red on!
Look, this isn't that hard. Someone in the organization got word to Ken Rosenthal that Manny was going to be fired. That much is clear. It may not be correct but Rosenthal is a pro and he's not going to state/write that if he wasn't told by someone he trusted and someone who would be in a position to know.
Once the cat is out there, it does no one any good to let it hang out there. Yet Manny has managed two more losses and headed to New York.
If you are going to fire Manny, do it. Now. Don't issue these cheesy non-denials and "I don't talk about personnel" crap. When your personnel is in a tremendously high profile job, you have to talk about it sometimes.
If you are not going to fire Manny, come out and say that and let's all move forward. Questions about his managing ability aside, Manny is a quality person. No one disputes that. He doesn't deserve this.
Someone in the organization brought an elephant into the room. It isn't going anywhere until someone in the organization moves it out of there.
Fire him. Or don't. But let's quit the fooling around and non-statements. It's out there and acting smug and all high and mighty isn't going to put it away.
There have been many times in the past five years that I've wondered what I did in a previous life to deserve to be saddled with a bad team that manages to regress every year. I went years and years and years without being a fan of anything and now I get this. Today is one of those days.
