The organizations with the other players input assessed the situation and obviously felt that to GROW they had to possibly get rid of a couple of weeds...whether a fair assessment or not...the proof will be in the pudding. We may get pudding or what looks like pudding but is scat...if the latter happens then there will be grounds for revolution against management and those that spurred them...
I expect some scat pudding for this season, but throwing the management under the bus immediately would probably be premature. I'd like to see how this group performs after a full season together, and how they solve the impending crisis at defense first.
If these things turn out to be coconut pudding, then I'm going to start shining my pitchfork and warming my torch.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
