Dejean reports that the first question asked at tonight's Q & A was the following:
"Why is it that, anytime you get somebody decent like Jason Bay, you have to get rid of him?"
Can anyone tell me when Neal and Company traded away "somebody decent" before the Bay and Nady trades? I'm sick of people talking about the current "regime" as if they had a hand in the past 16 losing seasons. Unfortunately for Neal and Co. they didn't have a hand in it, but rather it was what was handed to them.
What has Neal Huntington done that has hurt this organization? For once we have options for starting pitchers (No more VanBenny starting every time someone goes down) and we have legitimate prospects with names other than McCutchen and Walker. Neal is doing everything right.
Neal Huntington is not Dave Littlefield, nor is he Cam Bonifay. Despite the fact that he may do similar things to what they did, the difference is, Neal is doing those things right.
I'm frustrated with the years of losing too, but I'm smart enough to realize that for once we have front office personel who are doing things right. These guys have been here for less than two years. Give them a chance. Where have they done us wrong?
Mark my words: "Years from now people will be praising Neal and this front office staff for how they turned a perenial loser into World Champions."
Keep doing your thing Neal.
