Re GM influence and the trend ahead. Notice In LAD game Knebal decision to open Roberts called it an org decision
Seems kinda strange they ran Shildt off unless the higher ups think they have a team that is better than how they're performing :scratch:

I guess the $64K question is are they right about the team or was the team performing to their talent/skill level :think:

Sometimes to reach the pinnacle you have to know when to change out the good for the better. The Rangers are going to have to make several choices like that over the next 2 or 3 years, both on the field and off.

Article writer thinks is was a power struggle. FO thought more of the hitting coach than mgr.
a line in the sand was drawn and FO woke not play that game.
But yes funny it came down to that, not performance but philosophical differences

Not too much difference in business. I have seen high performing workers replaced because an upper wants their guy they can trust and work with in a comfort zone. Can easily be seen as arbitrary

Bet Schitt gets another shot

Yes they might but what choices are you thinking of?

They are yet to come. Harris replacing Lowe at some point could be one. A FA shortstop replacing IKF coukd be the first one. White replacing Dunning coukd be one in a couple of years. With the glut of MIF there could be more than one in that area. Many others also.

And, at some point we might be better off with a better manager.

Ok will finally declare

I am going with Story and innings eater Jon Gray
I do think we will pick up a LF eventually unless one of our IF prospects converts
Not sure a 3-5 year contract makes sense for a LF. Now perhaps a trade makes sense
Maybe Buxtin at some point if we can get a contract

Got to make the hard decisions sometimes

They all sign with their current clubs just prior to free agency starting and it is the coldest hot stove season ever.
