Making Decisions In A Doritos Dystopia

Everybody makes a bunch of decisions every day. Sometimes they work out great and sometimes they fail miserably. Most of them have very minimal impact on your life, either way. Whether it’s deciding to pass the car in the slow lane a half-mile before your exit or having that cup of coffee or soda a little later in the day than you normally do even though it could keep you up...

Could Weiss be the next NL manager to go?

After winning two of three games against St. Louis last week, Rockies fans had a glimmer of hope. That was quickly shut down when the Rockies went 1-5 on the road to follow. They are once again last in the NL West, carrying a 28-36 record. With the All-Star break around the corner it’s time to ponder, what is making this team so bad? It’s not the position players. They have...

Ramblings: This Was a Long Week

So, some stuff went down recently. Quite a bit of stuff, actually. Stuff that made some people angry, and others very happy. Let’s get into it. I would love to unleash a Bud Black take so hot that not even the White Walkers would be able to put out, but Dustin over at The Sac Bunt, as usual, wrote a terrific post on Buddy that I mostly agree with. There’s not much more that...

Did lack of player development lead Padres to fire Bud Black?

Often when a team fires its manager, its rationale becomes clearer after the fact. I maintain that the Padres’ dismissal of Bud Black was inevitable because both ownership and general manager A.J. Preller inherited him, then made a series of upgrades that raised expectations to an almost unreasonable level. Still, the idea that the team needs a fresh voice after nearly 8½ seasons...
