The culture of losing is a serious problem. The Valdespin episode was embarrassing – much as I hate how common hot-dogging has become for every friggin hit, you never ever allow another team to go after your guy and not defend him. That tells everyone that if you screw up, you’re on your own
He gets the job due to playing for the team, a profanity laced diatribe in an independent league game and trying to live down lying to the D'Backs regarding DUI, domestic issues...and self-immolation.
Love to see this guys face if Wacky Wally was managing, and the next day orders Harvey to send a message to "defend" a loose cannon fringe MLB league pinch hitter and in Harveys next PA he takes an inside fastball off his pitching wrist and the rest of the season off baseball.
I don't see Backman doing more than umpire baiting and playing to the writers.
They'll hire Backman and will win the WS just cuz the universe enjoys screwing with me that way.
