I still don't have much faith in Burke's abilities as a GM. He's vastly over-rated in my view.
Word was that this most recent season was the first that ownership had been pressuring him to show results, but I believe there will be new majority ownership in MLSE by the time the season rolls around. For better or worse, the people running the show won't be the same people who hired Burke, so he may actually get more
time to prove his worth.
