Last 2 seasons in the Nat League Central...finished 2nd to last. Can he turn them around? And being paid at $3+Mil per year, what time frame should he have to get it done? If he went to the Astros or Orioles, would he still be successful? Would he have the same amount of time to make it happen, or would it take longer?
"I've heard it countless times that the Cubs fans should expect to lose for at least the next few years. They are saying that it could take up to 5 years to rebuild the organization. To Epstein's credit, while acknowledging that a rebuild will take time, he has said their immediate objective is to win a championship, but I don't think he's put a time-table on it. But what puzzles me is that are they so screwed up that it takes 3-5 years to fix everything? But for Soriano, they don't have any horrible contracts and even if they did, they have the financial means to pay for their past mistakes. I just don't get why it would take them 3-5 years to reasonably expect to compete."
.........Because it takes time to stop the train, and then get it moving the other direction? There is still hope for JSDA, in that it didn't crash after earnings.
