look, if you think it would make sense to make big personel moves for Rivera knowing that he is bad start away from being fired....and you will then have to go out and hire new coach who you will need to build around for him to have success. So be it.
You have to realize Rivera being on the hotseat he is....dictates some things if you are the new GM.
DG wasn't brought in to add to the Hurney mess. DG, while I am not a huge fan of, I do applaud him for setting things up the best he could to take this team down whatever road he needs to after this season.
All of which are wild assumptions.
