Re: Joe Maddon fired…..
Arte Moreno doesn’t have a clue how baseball should truly work.
Never hope for an advertising guru to own your baseball team.
He’s only in it for the big splash.
Need someone like Steve Ballmer to buy them.
Over 10 times the net worth that Moreno has.
Then hire a true president of baseball operations who will
then hire a competent GM who in turn hires a solid group to assist in the FO, and hire a manager who has a balanced temperament (not a hot head or mellow yellow) and balanced approach.
No one talented wants to work for Moreno, the wannabe scout.
I think the Angels need a new owner who is a baseball guy. You can't fire the owner, so you fire the manager after 13 losses in a row which ties the all-time Angel losses in a row record. If they lose to Boston tonight, the current team will hold the new record. To make it worse, Trout gets injured running to first last night. They pay Rendon a lot of money, 36.5 million, and he's hurt every year.
I was kind of surprised that they fired him. But losing 12 games in a row it doesn’t leave the GM with very many options. It’s either him or the manager.
Too bad.... always liked Maddon...
New Coach is ?
yes we have that seen thay play out for over year now -- it is all about the process not the results -- how has that process work out for you so far? ----- and yes we do see the results --
Kind of bizzare, but not a shocker, I guess. Definite art to keeping one of these jobs over the long haul. Old school red ass Pinela types blow themselves up by making everyone miserable, new school “it’s the process, not the results” types makes ownership crazy by seeming indifferent with a tendency to pontificate. He still seems better suited for a young roster, IMO.
I'm surprised. On the other hand the manager always takes the blame for the future Hall of Fame players that go 0 for 26 and the team oozing with MVP talent that goes 0 for 12.
Angels are very talented and should be in the playoff hunt because there is only 1 strong team in their division.
in the words of Ron Burgundy “That escalated quickly”.
