If Little's only mistake is leaving pitchers in too long, that can easily be fixed: tell him not to. Firing him over that seems stupid.....but if there were other reaons, maybe it was justified. I don't like upper management appeasing fans/clients since it's useless for the most part, but I guess it has to be done to protect their image.
