This is a pretty good first game. Of course, it was against the Padres.
I’ve played a lot of baseball games. This is one of my favorites.
A lot of great stuff in this article.
Posting this because of some of the factors related to his resignation are relevant to MLB front offices.
I haven’t had time to read the full thirteen pages of his long-winded resignation. With that in mind…as much as I buy into having an objective “process” in running a sports organization, you need people skills and ownership backing to get buy in or your franchise will be a muddled mess.
