It’s only a matter of when….
While some of the baseball world expected Rockies manager Clint Hurdle to be fired yesterday, it didn’t happen needless to say. It’s like Dan O’Dowd or maybe Rockies ownership purposely refrained from the coming termination because so many were waiting for it to happen, including the players.
“We know what’s at stake.” Todd Helton is quoted as saying.
Playing the game of baseball to save your managers job is not playing baseball for the right reasons. The same with any other sport. I don’t believe the Rockies are doing that. They could be playing for just the opposite, which is also not for the right reasons, but it seems that way. One way or another, the “if” has been removed from the equation, it’s now only a matter of when.
