As I see it, Robin had one good yr and one bad one. Let this yr be the tie breaker.
I really don't understand the Robin hate. He almost won the division his first year and had a bad second year. There have been plenty of marquee managers that do well in one city and are dismal in other cities. Most of the time, it's the players rather than the managers.
