Another year of medicority or less


if you fire Art Howe

I WOULD GIVE ANYTHING for the A's to fire IDIOTS KEN MACHA AND CURT YOUNG and BRING back

Peterson is great. No doubt in my mind that he's the reason the Mets pitching has been this successful this year. I hope the Mets keep him for a long time to come.

Howe is a nice, old man but he's not the sharpest tool in the shed. He's a good manager but not a great one and has the emotions of someone in a coma. ;-)

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Did you read Moneyball? Howe was put in the managerial position to implement the ideas of the Front Office. He was the middleman.

Well that's the first one down. I don't think Brenley deserved to be fired for this poor season, but I'm not the owner.

It should be interesting to see who is next :-o .

i think if boston loses the series to atlanta, francona is gone (along with nomar).
