That sucks. If that's the case we may not see him back for a while. I hate to see someone fall off the wagon to where it could affect his life. The timing is what gets me though. Could it be coincidence that we're hitting so poorly or did we drive him to drink with our 'pour' hitting?
I used to look out for an alcoholic when he went on binges. The health danger is that they're starving themselves when alcohol becomes their entire diet on a binge. I brought him food, but the binge couldn't last much longer than a week. They are much more sensitive to things going wrong, but keep it inside. Usually a bunch of things seemingly pile up. The horrible hitting and any comments from Bowden or Acta would definitely have affected him. He'll survive but this team hasn't hit well since he arrived.
EDIT: He insists in another thread that it is NOT an alcohol or substance problem. There's a comment about him losing feeling in his arm, which sounds like a serious problem he does need to address immediately. Get well, Mitchell!
I already have a good impression of his replacement, Lenny Harris
. He looked at tape before the team was here and was working on problems immediately. That's EXACTLY what we needed NOW. And I wouldn't be in ANY hurry to switch back to Paige. Sorry, but he's wasn't getting the job done.
