Hurdle gone

Postby chem » Fri May 29, 2009 3:02 pm

DP reporting Hurdle will be fired today:
http://www.denverpost.com/rockies/ci_12477955

Implications? Sell-off of any expendable talent a reasonable trade can be made for... this may include Aktins, Hawpe, Helton, Spilborghs, Smith, Barmes, Street, Torrealba. Call-up of Carlos Gonzalez if a spot opens up in the outfield. Regular PT for Stewart, Tulo, Fowler. Acquirement of young pitching via trade.

Less suck.

first confirmation:

Long overdue, but it was time for a change. I wish him well in whatever he does next.

im surprised how quickly the rockies feel from being in the world series! but im not too convinced it had to do with the manager! the GM is the person who puts the team together, not the manager!
thank you very much for the sig, soty!

Anyone think there will be shake ups in the line up. Maybe more Ian Stuart? Barmes? What is the feeling of a new manager on the squad?

I do not expect them to be good. I am asking from a fantasy perspective. Thanks for not answering the question though ;-D
