I DO think that Big Rob has been a really good manager. I think he is uniquely right for the Phils.
I acknowledge that Dusty hadn't done that much until last year. I wouldn't trade Big Rob for him today on a bet.
I don't dispute your detailed knowledge of all that has happened.
BUT, if you take away the names and go back to the moment when you're deciding who to hire, if there's a guy that has won a WS championship, that would seem to be the highest qualification a candidate can have. He has proven he knows how it's done. So the selection of Big Rob, good as it is, may or may not have been a good decision for the Phils. Big Rob has to PROVE he was a good selection.
I'm sure we can work this out at the bar.
