In Response to Re: Enough with the puppet interviews, bring in Pena!
I'm very curious to know how anyone can truly say you like one candidate over another without talking to any of them. Aren't they just names? How do you really know what kind of manager they'll be? Yup, just names, and we know little about them, bordering on nothing. when we hit well, Magadan is a good hitting coach. If not, he needs to be fired. Farrell was a guy that the crowd wanted to replace Tito, then when the staff had a bad year, they wanted him fired, then when he had some success at TO, they wanted him back to replace Tito. When Ellsbury got hurt, a lot of folks became internet doctors. It's okay to speculate on ML players where we have some statistics to bandy about, but we're still amateurs. But we have no idea of whom the best managing prospects are.

that's true for EVERYTHING about sports. As fans, we have opinions, hopes and desires, and are allowed to discuss them. When Lackey throws a terrible game, maybe he had a migraine, maybe he just found out his wife was cheating, maybe his girlfriend just left him, maybe maybe maybe. It's all opinion. If this is really how anyone feels, why participate in a chat room at all? Few of us have ever met any athlete or manager? And thos eof us that HAVE met one, how many in depth conversations have been had? Few, if any. That being said, I guess none of us should even consider what players we may want, because their statds represent a different team playing different competition in front of different fans and answering to different media. So why bother?
In my OPINION, I think Pena would be a fine manager for this team. Have I met him? No. But using the information available to me, the path he's taken, the history he has, I come to a conclusion on my opinion that i'd like Pena. Simple as that. If anyone wants to have an opinion of my opinion, have at it.
