Eh, I don't really care one way or the other. Mac was way over his head. While lineup construction doesn't make a huge difference, his lineups bordered on the worst possible order. The biggest negative is that if Riggleman gets them playing better (and throwing up a lineup that makes sense and improving the defensive alignments will help that), then perhaps there is pressure to keep him on at the end of the year. Hopefully they get a new school guy in as GM and he gets to hire his own guy to manage.
