Nonetheless, I didn't think that MacT could fix all the issues in a single summer - that's wishful thinking.

Some more toughness in the bottom 6 would satisfy me, for now.
That's a good way to describe it. I think he wanted to do more than he did but it just wasn't there so he did what he could. One things I do like is how he seems to know exactly what he wants from a team and is working towards that and I am a big fan of it. IN hindsight it really seems like Tambellini was just kind of flying by the seat of his pants. A guy with a real clear idea of what he wants should be more successful than a guy just trying to plug pieces together and hoping for the best.
