This needs the front page:
…. what was (Paul) DePodesta’s reward for leading the Dodgers to the playoffs, for being a visionary who foresaw the pending explosion of the free agent pitching market one year early, for striking gold on three free agent acquisitions, and for showing incredible discipline to avoid inking any huge, terrible contracts, despite having an owner who would’ve green-lighted them?
A pink slip. That was his reward.
Hat tip to caterba for the link.
I would love to see DePodesta running the Giants.
