On a side note I am happy that we seem to have moved from arguing whether it is is the right thing to fire Tanny at all to an assumption that it is going to happen and the only open questions now are when it actually happens and in what capacity (if any) will Mike Tannenbaum be allowed to stay on with the organization? Anything higher than tea boy is a mistake IMO.
Thank God we have come to our collective senses! It took long enough.
In a board often populated with insufferable idiots peddling some stupidity or other, the most personally offensive to me were the army of tannenites for whom Mike Tannenbaum walked on water and could never do any wrong. Ever. This meltdown has been in progress for YEARS and it should have been obvious to anyone who took the time to look closely. In my opinion it belongs to one man and one man only. Our GM.
There is no way Tanny should be kept in any capacity, him and Bradway need to go. At some point you cant keep demoting your GMs when they fail at their jobs.
While I think this team desperately needs wholesale changes in the front office, I do not think it is going to happen after this season. Rex and Tanny will both have two years remaining on their contracts and Sanchez has essentially one year left. I think Woody stays with the current trio for one more year and then brings in a new regime which will have some cap flexibility and the ability to start fresh.
