Have you tested the market? Interested in what Riveras staying means to fandom.


I'm only walking away if Beane is hired. I'm cool with Rivera staying.

If they hire Beane I'm walking away from my PSLs


...and I'm selling mine right behind you...along with anyone else with a brain that owns them.

JR can sell some other idiot that Beane is the second coming of Ron Wolf.

Take a look over Hurney's prior drafts and free agency decisions for the past five years or so.

He should have been let go sooner.

And to be clear, midseason GM firings aren't as big a deal as midseason coach firings because most of their work is done in the offseason. Firing him after week six and hiring Accorsi shortly thereafter meant Accorsi had plenty of time to do his work,



Accorsi had plenty of time to do his work. hmmmmmmm

Will that make any difference to what JR s decision will be or when he will make it??

Hurney made his bed long ago, he knew it was coming. It should have happened back in 2011. As for Beane, the dude handled traveling arrangements.... I don't want that Motherf*cker anywhere near the GM position.

I love how people act like they actually know anything about Brandon Beane. When in reality they never heard of the guy until Hurney was fired.

He wasn't heard of because he's done exactly jack poo, being one of Hurneys cronies doesn't earn him any brownie points. If it's mediocrity we want he has plenty of close ties to that, I guess some of you have gotten used to it.

How about this? Do you want a first year medical student doing your open heart surgery if there is a skilled and experienced surgeon available? Whether you know anything about said student is not terribly important. The likelihood that he could do a better job than a trained and experienced surgeon is very, very low.

Who are you going to pick?

I got Clark Grisswold's Christmas bonus times about 5 this year.

Any of you that want to sell your PSL's drop me a private message.

...there is information on him on the internet. they all say he's been strictly a logistics guy and has literally no experience scouting.

Who does it matter who is GM when Rivera is still the one making the bonehead decisions on the field.
