If he turns out to not be your guy, your stuck with him until retirement (what? 2 yrs. at most?). Give the A's to your other emerging younger leaders, home and away rotation. Umberger, JMFJ, Wiz, Dorsett, and Dubi. Use the 1-2 years to audition who will follow Vinny. This way, you can be better assured you get the right guy for the job and aren't stuck with a choice that might turn out to be less the optimum (I'm looking at you, Nash). Just my opinion.
Agreed. I'm also OK with no 'C' being given out this year.
