Pay tribune to Tony Pena or have constructive critisism on him in this thread.

No Bitc****, though.


I personally think he did good for the Royals by having that magical 2003 season.

I've said ever since that streak, that hot start to the 2003 season probably hurt the development of this team more than it helped. Thanks to that hot start against (almost exclusively) two very pathetic teams, the Royals read more into the talent than what they actually had. It led management to believe we were a Juan Gonzalez and a Benito Santiago away from winning the division instead of starting two years ago the youth movement they are going through right now.

You gotta capitalize on it when you have your 1st winning season in 10 years.

Yeah, guess Royals fans rather spent time discussing about "play all their games on Sunday" than discussing the manager that bring them their first winning season in 10 years.

If that is true then Pena was a complete failure.

I am not saying they had a good team, I am just saying that seems like a rare opportunity for the Royals.

The season didn't come unexpected to realistic Royals fans. Its called rebuilding for a reason. Is it frustrating? Sure, but it is better to see the club doing the right thing instead of bringing in high-priced, one year free agents so the team will only lose 90 games this season.
