I ask this with all sincerity. Why are so many people excited for a guy how has been repeatedly passed over for jobs for at least the past 5 years?

He lost out to John Farrell for the Jays in 2010. Farrell was known to be a top candidate that off-season. The same 9ffseason he lost to Acta for the Indians skipper, but the Indians wanted Acta since he had experience, I believe.

The next few make some sense as well. Robin Ventura, Bo Porter, Rick Renteria, and Matt Williams were all favored internally by the respective organizations who hired them. His last audition makes little sense, because he interviewed for the Days opening when Madson left and was given support by players.
