What they really need is a new pitching staff.

Milton and Ortiz were really ugly for them last year. Lets hope the new blood bring some young promising arms with them.

That's true but getting rid of the guy who signed Eric Milton to a $25MM contract and traded for Ramon Ortiz is a step in the right direction. Just saying those names makes me ill

No doubt. Hopefully this is the beginning of the turn around.

I can't think of a more well-deserved firing.
