WOW. I figured it probably would happen, but it still seems rather abrupt. I guess I'll believe it when I see it also.
Rex should be very worried right about now. His plight will be in the hands of someone other than Mike Tannenbaum. He should be regretting staying with Sanchez for as long as he did, because if he gets fired, that would probably be the top reason. Anytime a GM perceives that the HC is more loyal to player than he is winning? That can never end well.
But Rex made his bed on this. The fans and media were talking about this since the beginning of the season. He knew that sticking with Sanchez could cost him his job.
I hope Rex keeps his job. It's very hard to find another that can achieve what Rex has.
