If the system is working properly, such a move ahould not cause legitimate fear among the fanbase. Unfortunately, due to the performance of the franchise in the waining years of Smith and under Sather, large amounts of mistrust still abound despite the success we are now seeing. I'm hoping that, in five years or so, Ranger fans will have the same confidence in Ranger management that Yankee fans did in the late 90's after finally emerging from the darkness that Steinbrenner had cast in the 80's.
You make some very good points, Jas. And, mayhaps you are right. It is pretty hard to erase certain feelings after decade's worth on ineptitude.
