I'll Give Him This

If Pete Mackanin, 10-4 as new Reds manager, can get this team to .500 at the end of the season, I could tolerate him getting the job. That would mean them going 40-26 the rest of the season and would prove that these guys will really play for him. But if things calm down, like it most likely will, and they play .500 ball during his tenure, then you gotta go in another direction. Fans deserve more than status quo in this selection.
