Gammons:

Speaking of that Chicago team that led the AL in wins (95) in 2000, manager Jerry Manuel still has owner Jerry Reinsdorf's backing, and with two more years remaining on his contract may well be back next season. Reinsdorf is blaming things other than the manager for the team's struggles, a novel concept.

I've heard of passing the buck, but he's passing it to nothing in particular. Talk about the blind leading the blind.

by that comment i think it is obvious that he is meaning the one person who is in charge, KW and the fans.

Is it just me, or does JM look more like the losing Dave Wannstedt every time they put a camera on him? He looks lost and confused. He has even less fire in him than Gene Lamont. JM should thank JR for this "novel concept" according to Gammons. Even in Wrigleyville you get fired for managing an underachieving, sub-par baseball team. But not on Chicago's Southside.

I don't know about you, but I thought Baylor was trying to get fired. He wanted to quit, but he wanted to get paid too. So he makes some boneheaded moves, and then calls out the GM in the paper saying that if they want to fire me, then do it. How do you not fire him after saying that?
