Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Ha, seems they forgot to tell him he was retiring when the press asked him about it, as he intends to still look for another job managing next season.

All that said, his team has spent a lot of money and not gotten much for it lately, so makes sense to fire him. And as this was kinda the idea when they hired Sandberg, may as well see what they've got for a month or so before going into the offseason. He won't be tied to the win-loss, as not a ton he can do to shake it up now, but if they like his style, he gets to stay.

And, of course, Philly is known for its class
