McLaren fired, Riggleman in
So says the hot rumor. I guess he got the predicted June 19th viking funeral after all.
11:30 press conference.
Was it the open letter on lineups? I was only trying to be helpful.
As Dave noted earlier, the reason to keep McLaren around would be to let an incoming GM pick their own candidate: if Riggleman does better the rest of the season, which should happen, then the thought is it’s harder to fire him. I’m not sure that’ll deter whoever takes over, of course.
