Maddon cost the team wins last year, he didn't create them.

Also, DeJesus is making $5mil this season and is the team's best hitter. That is a bargain for every major league team that has even mediocre attendance. I know, I know.....how are fans expected to attend games when the nicest, most appreciative, and fan-friendly player in franchise history is only hitting .417.

regardless of who the player is, the manager is a key part of the equation and Sternberg went bargain hunting (as usual) hiring an untested, grossly inexperienced no-name manager to replace the face of the organization.

That's ok at least we dont have a cheap owner and a better stadium. We have our Lombardi also it may be from the 50's but it's still a Lombardi trophy.
