Sometimes he would hit the homeruns but then if he didn't his plan B, C, and D would amount to an F. How much of all of this was in part due to Snider not completely empowering Homer to be his own man is debateable but I do think in the last few years Snider has been more of a negative influence. Honestly, what I want to see out of Hextall is a consistent plan on how to assemble a roster that competes night in and night out and is an actual contender not this cusp playoff team mediocrity we have been experiencing of late....
That's Paul Holmgren: always going for the homerun, hit or miss,... Homer was known for his bold but risky moves. What Hextall stands for remains to be seen....
