FW’s seat should be getting warm

He’s made some nice trades, but FW has made many questionable decisions of late. He hired Fredi. And Larry Parrish. He signed a 35-year-old pitcher to a four-year, $60 million deal. He pissed away $27 million on Kawakami. The extension he gave Chipper was probably not the wisest use of resources. The jury’s still out on the Uggla deal but is he a guy you build a team around?

And does anyone think signing Fatnandez and Durbin was a good idea?

    I don’t mind the Hernandez acquisition too much, but picking up Durbin didn’t make any sense to me at the time, and it looks even more nonsensical now. And I’m still unclear as to why we got rid of Conrad only to pick up Francisco, who makes Conrad look like Brooks Robinson.

  2. Let’s also not forget the McLouth trade. That gem didn’t exactly help the product or the payroll.

    But who would turn up the heat on Wren? McGuirk? JS? Those guys don’t admit misstakes and only fire hitting coaches. Brandon Beachy has more RBI than Dan Uggla and Freeman.

    FW also put 40% of the payroll in three guys — Hudson (nothing against Huddy), Chipper (nor against Chipper) and Lowe — who will combine to play about 125 games.

    I can’t see Liberty Media making such a move before his contract expires.
