Are we really supposed to believe that anything will be different? Apparently McWane was simply a sacrificial lamb like Stelly and Jerry White.

1) Does this individual garner the respect of his peers, who will now be his subordinates?
2) Does this person understand what went wrong at the bosses level and have an actionalble plan for fixing it?
3) Does this person have the qualifications for the job description.
Promotions can breathe new life into an organization, especially is the higher up that was fired consistently stiffled the new ideas. If you get more of the same out of the position, then your criticism is warranted.

What bothers me the most is that we don't see people leaving the Twins organization, getting experience elsewhere and then coming back. (Krivsky would be an exception, I suppose). Instead, they stay mired in the "Twins way" -- but guess what? Maybe that "way" could use some updating with fresh energy and ideas. It looks to me like by the time anyone gets promoted to an influential position, they've been indoctrinated in the "Twins way" for so long they probably don't even remember that there are other approaches out there. Stability is good. Stagnancy is not. It's time to breathe some new life into this organization.
