Well, couldn't possibly be worse than what McLane has done over the past 5 years, right?

What McLane has done the past 5 years isn't worse than what he did at the end of 2004, which is meddle into the General Manager's job so much that Gerry Hunsicker, widely regarded as one of the top GMs in the game and the architect of the Astros contending teams throughout the 90s and early 2000s was forced out.

Jim Crane could right that wrong by hiring Hunsicker protege Andrew Friedman out of Tampa to take over for Ed Wade, Tal Smith and all the other yes men that McLane surrounded himself with since, and let the man just do his job.
