The long nightmare for A’s fans finally came to an end today: Manager Bob Geren has been fired.
I haven’t been this excited about a breaking news story since Osama Bin Laden was killed. How often can you lump an evil terrorist mastermind and a bland, clueless baseball manager into the same post?
Of course, the roster still stinks, the ballpark is still a decaying dump, the owner is still a clueless old man bent on relocating the team and the general manager still has a lot of blood on his hands for this whole mess but for one day A’s fans everywhere can celebrate and look forward to a breath of fresh air.
Good luck Bob Melvin, you have a lot of people pulling for you as you take the reins in the dugout.
