I don't know about that. Lack of patience to me would be maybe a scenario where you have a young guy (Bob) and you think he will be better or as good as someone else (Bryz) but you make the trade or whatever because you don't want to wait that long. The scenario that actually went down, at least from as best that I can tell, is that you had a young guy (Bob) who had a CHANCE to be as good and even less of a CHANCE to better than someone else (Bryz). Snider/Homer did not want to wait to find out if that was going to happen. That isn't lack of patience, that is making an odds calculation or whatever you want to call it. The thinking would have been that if Bob reaches his true potential, he will be Bryz in a couple years. Bryz is Bryz now. I know you didn't see it like that and you thought it was a sure-thing, as we had that discussion already.

But I could see how this could be filed under "lack of patience," though I don't agree with that. However, the rest of the criticisms related to a lack of patience are even less grounded in reality and seem to just be the flavor of the month criticism since "asset management" looks to be a thing of the past.
