So this should last about only 4 more games the way I figure.
I am thinking, more like 4.... tee. 40.

Its a short year. Salvatore said it took 25 games to get a system in place in NJ, not the 15-20 some have alluded to. 25 games is pretty much the year. George does not often make knee jerk moves, hence our team the way it is. Players have no fear of being traded. Zilch. Probably Oates too.

I am really really hoping George goes behind the bench if Oates does get canned but I just don't see it.

Ovi will be the lighting rod even if Oates plays him with grinders all year.
