Jack didn't get fired he retired. He was almost fired in July by Beinfest before Loria stepped in.

 

It was pretty evident by the middle of last season that he had completely lost the clubhouse (and it turned out to be true). They 'lollygagged' at a rate that must have been a major league record. He also did a terrible job of managing a bullpen that most of us thought was going to be good after the acquisition of Villone.

 

Lets not forget how the man wouldn't let guys like Hermida and Willingham play when the older guys were struggling big time. He rarely gave everyday guys days off and it cost us big time in late September.

 

Last year is heaven compared to what has happened so far this year but it wasn't the greatest of experiences with Jack McKeon in charge.

Could you imagine what it would be like if Jack was managing this year's team?

 

He already would have made Wellemeyer cry 3 times.

 

He would insist upon bunting the runner over with no outs in the 1st inning in Philadelphia when the final score would be something like 11-7.

 

He could never pronounce Uggla.

 

He would have quit a week ago.

 

This years team is much better off with Girardi.

I dont agree with his approach. I dont agree with many of his managerial decisions. I think that Girardi will be our manager long enough to "teach" these young kids to play major league ball then he will be fired and someone will come in ala Jack and really light a fire under these guys.

He should yell and, if necessary, throw chairs at them.

 

 

That way, he can fill the role of baseball's Bobby Knight that was vacated by Lou Pinella this season.
