    TK stayed with the listing ship in the 90's and turned the team over to Gardy only when improvement in performance was visible. That may be the plan for this transition, also.

    I think it was Gardy or TC Bear.
    I have it on good authority TC Bear's backup outfielder of choice was Alex Presley.

    This is a really long game, but I didn't want to do my taxes anyway.

    TC Bear is awfully persuasive...

    Even if Gardy was begging Antony to keep Bartlett as the BU CF, Antony could still make the call to go with Parm or Presley or sign one.

    i struggle with the thought that Gardy would want Bartlett instead of a BU CF. This is the manager who won't DH Pinto because he doesn't want to lose DH. Why would he want to BU Hicks with a player who can't hit or field?

    There's something troubling, but also impressive about that.

    I believe you are correct, if he can get to Cleveland by game time tomorrow, that would be awesome.

    Troubling if it's a "he" and impressive if it's a "she."

    Thats a good point. It starting to remind me of the Scott Hatteberg scene in Moneyball.

    Conversation RE: Bartlett on the TD game forum was lagging so Gardy gave it some more juice.
