If we land a good manager, why shouldn't he stay here 10 years? He will be coming to a team with loads of talent that should be on the upswing. He will be coming to a team that has never won, so if he can make them win, he could very well become an icon in the Tampa area. I am not saying Maddon is not the guy, but if the manager and DRO can get this team to be competitive next year, I could easily see Maddon or whomever the manager is hanging around for many more years. Once we ever get to the competitive point, I think we will be very strong in the AL East for several more years with all of the young kids we have.
