Deadspin: Jeter sucks at being Marlins owner

Recommended Posts

Quote

By this point in the new management’s tenure, though, it is clear that the Marlins are not better off under new management. They’re not even very different.

While preaching accountability but not holding themselves accountable for how bad they've been since day one, Derek Jeter and this ownership have shown that they are just as bad as the last ownership...

Maybe there should just be a topic about jeter hate coming from the media and we can keep them all in there?

Just a suggestion, if you prefer it this way, I'll still be here regardless lol

"failed to understand that accountability is only really accountability when it applies to everyone"

the bulk of that article was just obnoxious to read, mostly because the author enjoys using every word from his kid's SAT study guide, but the last line above does indeed ring true.  It was written in reference to Denbo and Jeter and their reputation for being unwilling to really listen to the opinions of others but preach accountability.

To be honest. This early into their tenure what have they done wrong ? Firing denbo? We don’t even know why that was. For all we know he was beating his wife or something. 

The trades ok. But if you commit to a rebuild the trades had to happen.

They haven't done anything right they're exactly the same as the previous ownership the rebuild has already failed. Agree with this or get out.

Whether the trades work out (the big ones) remain to be seen.

But Jeter and Co have done a fucking shitty terrible job PR wise.  Its on Loria like levels how thats gone tbh.

They have also made some horrendous gaffs business wise (the A ball affiliation move the biggest probably), so there are valid points made in this little write up, but its just awfully written.  

I guess its easy to be a writer these days.  

 

So in summation.  Some really bad moves.  Some moves that are TBD.  (though Mags looks like trash, Brinson looks like trash, Sandy is the inconsistent pitcher he was always thought he was; so the secondary wave better be a lot better)

Not to mention the overall smugness that Jeter puts off at times to the media, that isnt exactly endearing.

So you're saying you agree with this?!  Man, I'm confused.
