Inaugural San Diego Charger Fan Since 1962 FUDEAN

practically speaking you are probably right, however we are talking about an organization that is in the dumpster year after year, is allegedly attempting to alter the perception of the organization, and I know of no better way then to bring in the big names. We did with Machado. Good move. Hosmer, good move. Tatis is a great electric attraction. But outside that I'm not sure. Paddack good til he starts tiring. Yates great closer. I just wonder if a name manager who has been in the majors quite a while wouldn't translate to a conficence with the young players and the fans that this club is serious. Green just has never done a damn thing in the majors. Sure maybe not his fault 'cause he hasn't had a boatload of talent. But Boch has been to war and back and would bring an excitement that Green will not til he's won a WS. Green could be the next Bellicheck (after struggling in CLE) or could be the next Mike McCoy.I dunno. Hiring big name expensive managers goes against what is working now for other teams. Like it out not, money goes into analytics now, not into a manager. We fans always want big names because that's who we know. We don't know some up and coming manager in the minors or some bench coach on another team.
I'd concur with the opinion that this organization has a history of holding onto managers for as long as possible so Green is probably here AT LEAST another year. I'm frustrated with this year's performance thus far. Now Tatis gone and that's gonna be the excuse for Green just as norb had used up excuse after excuse and hung around about 5 years too long. Just sayin'. Right now I'm not real positive about this club's future with Green at the helm, heck even with a guy like Boch not sure about it.
Some say be patient....how long is that? I'm good if we make a late season run and end up at or above .500 with a shot at a wild card. If so Green has deserved to stay. Other than that I'd say move on.
