Because I'm sure it's true. Regardless of his title, he works for the owners, particularly the small market teams. There are several deals owners would LOVE to rid themselves of.

Just because it may be a dumb/stupid or perceived to be, doesn't mean he won't say it. He may be smart, no question but his “We recovered last time because we have the world’s greatest fans” suggests he has the odd lapse.
