I don't think anyone really said it would be unprecedented. Just unwise. And I'm not down on his ability to be a good GM down the road, and I don't think anyone really is. But most of us would prefer someone with more experience and more of a managerial pedigree. Someone proven, or at least more experienced at any level. Not such a wild card.

And no matter how you slice it, it screams of cronyism. I'm not saying that is uncommon...but I still don't like it.


It's just pain.
