Not to mention he was fricking 12 years old at the time.
Your basis for him being a good manager is a book he wrote. Cause that's not bias or anything. I've yet to see a good reason for him being qualified to manage.
I've never heard any Red Sox fan say, "man we should have never fired that Kevin Kennedy guy".
So in Texas he was fired because of politcs? It had nothing to do with the fact that the team 52-62 and time of his firing?
If you want, I can pull excerpts from the book and let you know exactly why he was fired from each team. Nevertheless, he was a big league manager for two different teams. Each of his manager positions were during some transition periods for the teams which had at least something to do with his being let go.
I'll have to go back and read the chapters about his being let go from Boston and Texas but I do remember it wasn't simply that the team was losing so he was let go.
Well, of course in his book he's not going to admit that he was at fault.
Come on now. Biased source much?
Ok... and Jim Tracy led the Dodgers to their first playoff appearance in 8 years. Does that mean he shouldn't have been fired?Quote:
