No choice for Kenny Williams?

I ask only half-joking. He did acquire 3 of the 5 players on that list via trade.

Gotta go with Navarro.

Ritchie, Wright, Koch, these guys suck. But at least they generally take losses like men, as opposed to pointing the finger at everyone around them like Navarro used to do.

Koch is terrible, but at least he admits it. Royce actually said that hitting was overrated as his batting average scraped the floor. He deserves all the whipping one world can offer.

Everything in this organization revolves around the man in charge.

Nuff said.

Both crossed my mind, but while they were controversial, I don't think they ever rose (sunk?) to the level of the others. Manuel was well liked (on a personal level) to the end of his tenure. And Williams did pretty well in that Keep Kenny/Fire Kenny poll.

If you really want to vote for either, I'll ask the mods to add them.

i vote koch, and it's not because of the extreme emotion involved concerning him right now, but looking at it in perspective, look at what he's done, and look at what we pay him

Navarro was a gutless scum bag who set this organization back a couple of years.

He was brought in to be this staff's Ace, and ended up being the worst pitcher in baseball for three straight seasons. Quite possibly the worst FA signing of all time. And when you consider Roger Clemens could have been had....it just makes me sick.

The greatest thing to come out of Navarro's signing was the trade with Milwaukee that brought in Eldred and Valentin. He then had the nerve to slam Thomas for not being a better "leader". It was poetic justice to see Navarro get booed out of County Stadium with his tail between his legs by the end of April 2000, and then released.

Rot in hell Navarro! :angry:
