In it Bob says that he will announce his findings very soon. Bob has apparently went outside the organization for consultation with this.

This news makes me think that we aren’t going to see any changes in the front office staff – at least not to any of the key decision makers.

Sorry if I upset anyone.

“Did anyone run these hires by Dejan Kovacevic before the final decisions were made? Hope so. ”

My reply:
“They won’t count for DK until, you know, Bob N says it.

Can’t believe that a good baseball man like Dave Jauss would want to work for an organization that is a total laughingstock! ”

Hurdle likes to tinker with hitters, after all he was a batting coach with Texas, where did that get us?
I wanted to see coaching changes, I think the first base coaching adjustment was a good move, someone has to teach these guys how to run.
I thought that the Pirates game approach to hitting was wrong and hope that Bell brings a new game approach.

Bell was a great bunter when he was with us.
