What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
Sorry, I had to use the Darryl Worley song title, as it fits.
In September of 2011, we had an attack on our Country. And not to belittle that with my point, but we also had essentially the same payroll as we do a decade later.
Difference? We finished last that year. John Hart was the idiot GM. Now? Jon Daniels is the genius GM and we are in the play-offs... again.
I question personnel moves like the rest of you, but you have to defer to a guy, who is not only a brilliant GM, but is grooming future GM's in Thad and A.J. and then some.
Not much of a point to this, except to say J.D. needs his due, appreciation wise. I'll eat some crow, as I initially said when he was appointed GM, that he shouldn't even be the bat-boy for this team.
Obviously we all make mistakes in judgement. We've all woke up to a fat or ugly girl or two, albeit not all at once.
Bottom line? We are damn lucky to have what and who we have.
We had an attack on our country last month? I thought the US raped Libya last month.
I feel like I'm repeating myself from the other Forum topic about OBP
You do know that John Hart hired Jon Daniels. Then, decided to step down and allow Daniels to take over as the new GM in 2005. He's still with the Rangers as a senior adviser and is under contract with them until 2013. Not to mention, Tom Hicks kept Jon Daniels after a few terrible trades in the beginning and agreed to the new plan to rebuild in 2007. To say that John Hart had no hand in JD's development into a fine GM is moronic and short-sighted considering that you're saying that JD is doing the same with Thad Levine and AJ Preller(Senior Director of Player Personnel).
Let's just give Hicks and Hart the credit that they are due.
Hart wanted to rebuild in the first place hicks wouldn't let him. It was hicks idea to bring in Arod and Park and all of the other I'll advised FA signees. Hart drafted kinsler and blalock traded for Cruz drafted Ogando In th rule 5. Traded FOR AGon drafted mark texiera. I don't think hart is aN idiot I do think hicks wa though.
