What They Think Of Bochy In SF
Counterpoint: Whoa. You alright?
Counterpoint: Deep breaths. Deep breaths.
Point: The Giants...just hired...Bruce Bochy...to be their manager.
Counterpoint: Oh. Not bad.
Point: Not bad? Not bad? You can't be serious. I thought that you didn't want a retread?
Counterpoint: Retread, to me, means a manager that's worn out his welcome everywhere he's been. In every city, he leaves a wake of disgruntled fans and a wake of disgruntled players. Bochy doesn't fit that description.
Point: Whatever. If you're satisfied with mediocrity, be my guest. Pull up a seat on the train to San Mediocre, with a few stops along the way at Badville, Wretchedsburg, and Veteran Footsie Town. This doesn't fit with a New Direction.
