.....and said that is the reason Hurney was fired. He actual words were that Richardson had reservations about Rivera.

Wonder who JR liked?

Rivera will have to pull off a miracle to keep his job.

Yeah, I can't see Rivera surviving the axe at all after the season if this is true. The New GM will want his own guy and Richardson really didn't like Rivera from the start.

Another losing record and RIver should be out the door. If he somehow manages 8-8 or 7-9 it will be tough because technically we improved from last year at that point.

I think Rivera is very smart but its hard to tell whether the players like to play for him or respect him. It also sucks he isn't very outwardly emotional. Sure it doesn't mean you don't care but showing it means you care to show that you care, and when people see signs you care its a bit more inspirational.

I am still meh on Rivera, IF we even out, right now I want out.

I think any of the other candidates interviewed after the 2010 season would have been a better choice than Rivera.

After the mind coach thing, you have to wonder if this is more b.s.

If true, it increases my respect for JR in two ways. First, apparently he is still pretty sharp in spite of his advancing years, and second, it kind of kills the whole JR is really running things theory. Sounds like he was letting Hurney make the important decisions whether he supported them or not, and that's a good thing in general for a owner/GM relationship.

So much for people thinking JR makes all the big time decisions.
