[QUOTE]In Response to Re: A Realistic look at 2012: Part I : I read Hohler and see a completely different handling of the issues. "Team Sources" are used and not disclosed, and then in FAIRNESS
, he gets and prints Tito's response, the reader then can make up his own mind if it is plausible. The sources are not likely to be identified, as they do not have the financial security to take a hit of being fired. Tito can always pick up a few coins in the booth, and re-sign with another team in the neighborhood of $3-4M
. Because Tito denies something, doesn't mean it's not a cause, it just means Tito doesn't see it that way.

If that were true, Youk, then Tito would now be signed. Don't you think the issues with his marriage and pain killers illuminated by the press have a bearing on his future employment as a manager? GM's will now think twice, as they have to answer for their decisions.
You play a game of hoops many, many years ago with Hohler and feel his article was fair. I don't. Schilling called it "character assassination of the worst kind" (against Tito). Hohler clearly stated how much the subject matter bothered and hurt Tito, yet the SOB took it one step further.
The piece brought attention to everything that had already been written, with the possible exception of Tito's marital issues. Hohler's intention was to link everything he could dig up with the collapse.
Then Hohler gave the impression
of fairness by quoting Tito. He put it in the minds of the reader and then tied to justify his actions. He never made a single quote from his sources. You call that fair?
If any of his sources come back to him and say,"Hey man. I never even alluded to..."
Hohler can respond with: "I know. I never quoted you, did I?".
This hack took scraps from different "sources" and used it to feed the fan frenzy.
Here's an example of how a writer can sway his readers:
Let's say the Sox lost a really tough game in the 9th, 4-3.
A writer can say "gallant effort! team just fell short as..." Or
"RedSox choked again in the 9th when...".
Hohler's piece exemplifies the garbage that the Globe allows to be printed.
When they hired Mazz and Abraham and Hohler, the tide turned...for the worst.
