Forecasting is not a standard bases for performance job reviews, and not based on educated guesses on things that haven't actually happened, or on things someone hasn't done yet.

When Burke was hired it was done with the goal of improving the team, MLSE did that with hope of forecasting future playoff games and team success. That has not happened in the 4 years since his arrival and that is a fact, which proves the forecasting model was inaccurate up until now, and company objectives have not been met.

If a GM is hired and inherits a 83 point, 7th last overall team and in 4 years of changes and transactions he turns it into a 80 point, 5th last one overall, all the forecasting in the World is not going to show improvement based on actual results obtained. So forecasting is projecting, but its evaluated on performance on how accurate those educated guesses were when the actual results are in.

Which then turns the attention to if the original forecasting model (best guess) was inaccurate or the person hired with the goals of obtaining them the reason for the failure.

Signature: There is no greater demonstration of Fan patience then to suggest to "Play the Kids " and be willing to accept the consequences of those actions..
