For a board that prides itself for avoiding the' Gee isn't X a great player? He 's my hero' flotsam...There has been enough good and bad flowing from the FO to dispense with the fawning...
The "fawning" that has gone on here over Theo has been beyond Bambi-esque.
The guy voiced his opinions in a obviously articulate and discerning way. Give him credit for stepping up.
The fact is, all the people that hunched over their keyboards and wrung their hands while imagining the boogieman Lucky Larry was the other gunman on the Grassy Knoll while being a malovent puppetmaster and mind controlling JWH have to either come back to reality or make the ridiculous leap that Principal Owner is either a bafoon or disengenuous.
Nobody is perfect and JWH has says he would have handled the Theo thing differently. He also, plainly to me anyway, is moving ahead with a purpose. Thank God for that.
He opted into this arena...at least be neutral...
The guy has demonstrated he is a winner and he has demonstrated that he cares about us, the fans, in an unusually insightful way. Never mind neutrality. I have never been neutral in my life.
Now back to the important stuff... keeping Manny happy, acquiring Ace #3, getting B.J.Ryan's deal done, 1B, and CF.
JWH may as well have started a "Thank You Lucky Larry" thread with his answers. I believe it is time for people to rethink the contribution that LL has made to this team. Give that
guy some credit too.
