so, uh...yeah. i get the animosity towards bobby v. someone is to blame for this season. why not? but, really, what makes all of you (ok, well most of you) think that Ben will choose the correct manager? what has he done to prove that he will make the right decision?
fyi - the blockbuster deal you all love was flowed thru CMDR Data. it was not the brainchild of BC.
what makes any of you think that it wont be another LL choice??? lol @ everyone putting so much "faith" in Cherry's decision making process.....
I know Cherrington will do better because it's not possible to make a worse pick than they did last year.
and to Cheringtons credit, made the right call then, when he didn't want BV.
Cherington is suspect because he was trained by Epstein. That alone puts him at a disadvantage since it is Epstein who is largely responsible for the state of the franchise. I hope I am wrong about this, but I think they will probably give him a couple of years to try to fix things, and if I am right about his level of incompetence this will only delay the return of the Red Sox to relevance.
So, you were willing to give BV a chance and even went so far as to say fans that didn't think Bobby V should've been hired were being grossly unfair.
Even though BV last stint as a manager in the majors was a trainwreck, in NY.
But, Cherrington doesn't deserve a chance to prove himself simply because he was "trained" by Epstein?
Makes perfect sense...
He is going to get his chance, whether I like it or not. And besides that I never said that I would not give him a chance. You have misinterpreted what I wrote. I wrote that he is "suspect", meaning that I would be watching him closely if I were his boss, and that he would be on a short leash.
