I said that Lowe was still pulling the strings and that Tambo was brought in to give a much more likeable PR face for the team. Remember, when Tambo was hired Lowe was feeling a lot of pressure -- team not playing well, striking out on big free agents and trades, public feud with Burke. Tambo became the public face of management when he was hired, as well as the lightening rod for criticism. I wasn't sure who the next GM would be, but I did say on the day MacT joined the team again that Lowe had just tipped his hand on Tambo's successor. This thing has been laid out like deck of cards for years now. Read Brownlee's article today at ON. Even he says anyone who didn't know MacT would be the next GM doesn't understand how this team is run.
