Not sure who this guy on MLB Network is, but he just said, Mike Rizzo, who never played the game, can’t be running the team. #WTF
Ah, it’s Mike Sweeney who thinks Rizzo is in no position to make decisions for the team he currently runs that is in first place.

@acomak
Seriously?

@Kevin_Goldstein
@acomak I can't make this up. it was in reference to Strasburg and innings counts.

@jay_jaffe
Mike Sweeney's position on Mike Rizzo's fitness to make the Strasburg decision suggests he should swich from milk to


@jay_jaffe
fine to disagree with Nats shutitng down Strasburg (Stark piece may have changed my mind) but saying Rizzo's unfit to decide is just idiotic

Is Beane a success?


Absolutely. He's never won a World Series obviously, but he's done a good overall job in Oakland, even if most of his success was in the early 2000s.

Here is the list of GMs:

Nolan Ryan

Is not a GM.


Anywho, didn't Jon Daniels field back to back WS teams, even if they didn't win?  He never played ball.

I thought Ryan was in charge there, even if he's not the GM.

What are Mike Sweeney's qualifications to Judge GMs?  Has he been one?

He's an idiot!  NEXT!

Nope, there's the whole pitching philosophy thing but the trades Jon Daniels have made have been 100% Jon Daniels. I read an interview with him somewhere...aw, rats.

I think that this season is Rizzo's defense. Doesn't need any of us crazy fans standing up for him when his record is this good.

Jason Stark wrote a really good piece on Strasburg's innings limit. Must read piece

He actually was a fine player. Like many ex-jocks they should stick to in game stuff only.
