Riggleman will take his place.

Honestly, at this point its like spraying perfume on dog ****. It may smell a little better, but its still dog ****.

Hahaha, seriously. Rizzo has been a quality scout for the Diamondbacks, though. He should be the GM soon. Riggleman....uh, I'd make a change at season's end.

I had no idea Riggleman was still around. Wow.

Then I looked him up and realized he managed Seattle for the end of last year?

The more you know I guess...

Still, the perfume on dog crap analogy is correct here.

He is the GM.

Oh, my bad. I thought he still had the interim tag.

Acta fired?

Or...not.

I figured that it'd be done by now. :scratch:

It'd probably cost them more to fire him and bring in someone else than to just let him finish the season out.

And it doesn't address their serious problem, which is their pitching. A 5.05 team ERA in the National League? :whiner:

I think the Acta whacking has been put on hold since the pitching has been a lot better over the past week or so. If only MacDougal had pitched this well with the Sox...
