I LOL at all of the posters acting like they know who the GM should be over folks that have actually been involved with pro sports franchises for many many years. I'll go on record as sayin that I don't care who the hire is. I believe that Acorsi is doing his job and JR will use the advise given to him and make a good solid choice. That includes Beane as well. No one here has any idea if the guy can do the job or not. All this BS about him learning from Hurney means nothing. I worked and learned my profession from people that lost their jobs due to lack of performance. When I was promoted years later I'm certain there were many that felt just as some on this board do about Beane. 20 years later I'm still in my position with the same company. I'm pretty certain JR is using the advise from his consultant and none of us know that Beane isn't being pushed by Acorsi. If you're gonna leave if Beane is named GM why not just leave now and find another team to pull for?
if they hire beane then you can have my seat. i'll go find a team that actually makes a concerted effort at competing. you can stay here and rationalize our organization making decisions like autistics for the next ten years if you want. i'd rather be cheering for a team in january then coming up with any excuse i can as to why the team isn't competing in january.
