We are emulating the Rays model at this point. Unfortunately, we are not at the stage of the 2008 Rays yet, but probably more like the 2001 or 2002 version. There is no easy fix. The team will play better, but a new manager is not going to make us a contender.
We are TRYING to emulate the Rays model now. We are more like the 2003 Tigers now and less the 2008 Rays. I just want a manager who will hold his player's accountable. You don't run out a ball (B-Rob 2009, Lugo 2010), you don't play.
