There are so many quotes in this MLB.com interview with Chuck Armstrong that made me wince that I don’t know where to start pulling them.
– trusts his own instincts and decision-making
– believes best person to hire new GM is himself
– wants to return to collaborative management, like they had in the good old days (presumably, this means collaborating with Lincoln/Armstrong)
– says he invites dissent and apparantly feels the M’s have done this in the past
I’ve really been trying not to get too depressed or whatever when I read stuff like this, but the temptation to read every quote in the most negative way possible is almost irresistable.
