Because he is a direct link to Bud Seligs office.

Right, remember, he is a mlb employee, right out of the exec office.

i am sorry but i didn't understand that. an example ok.

i thought his rough like approach to the game can be of benefit to the sox.

i would hope that frank robinson is smart enough to know that working under jerry reinsdorf generally isn't a good idea... and that whatever talent this ballclub has most likely will be gone within the next two years because of our wonderful general manager.

Frank Robinson is an employee of MLB baseball,and is a past executive there,so we all know where his priorities are.

I like the idea. The man preaches plate discipline. We could use someone like that.

When Steve Howe pitched for the dodgers, Frank once brought a bag of talcum powder into the dugout, and rubbed it on his nose and upper lip when Howe was pitching.

He also had a pitcher in SF who constantly complained about being yanked early. One day the guy got shelled in Wrigley (5 runs in the first 3 innings). Frank went out to the mound just to tell him that he didn't like being yanked, so he wouldn't be. The guy ended up giving up like 15 runs in 4 innings. He kept staring into the dugout and Frank would wave his hand.

I like Frank, but not sure he's been a successful manager in several chances.

c'mon the players today are treated like prima-donna's. he will instill some life in a very lethargic group.

He was washed up at 30 as well--so the Reds thought
