Question his decision to keep Rivera....there are very valid points for why we may should have cut bait.
However, once that decision was made, you almost had to go down the path of one year contracts.
unfortunately, this is the case. thats the frustrating trend, in efforts to bring about needed change, we fear bringing about too much change at once and end up creating more problems and digging more holes for ourselves that we have to climb out of.
they just haven't been able to think more than a step ahead and its making the process take too long and limiting the possible reward. its making the process harder to sell to players, fans, and prospective coaches because its taking too long to reap the rewards. no one has patience. do they need it? probably, but they don't have it and you aren't going to make them have it. thats just the way it is and you either adjust to those with no patience and who expect quick results or you fall behind while others adapt to it.
