If you want to ignore his statement after not renewing, that's fine. But don't act like there's no reason to suggest it.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to imply that something was wrong with you. It's just that those are what those words mean. You know, in the literal sense.

What does managers consistently being fired before their third season have to do with any second year manager? EVERYTHING

Right. Which means he isn't sure...

You'd have really hard time arguing for anyone else if you look at the last five years. Not that you couldn't. But most arguments on it end with Fielder.

How are the Giants going to cause the Tigers to fail in the regular season and get Leyland fired?

When did I imply they did? Unless you mean that our previous production has no bearing on projections for this year. If that's your position, fine. But don't knock empirical evidence as a type of evidence just because you don't' believe in it. You are welcome to disagree with it.

That the average MLB manager doesn't last three years? That we're coming off a flop of a September? That Robin himself openly questioned whether he was right for the job?

I don't have time for this. You aren't looking at evidence. You're running an inquisition.

I'll limit what I say here because I'm not a moderator, but I would suggest you re-read the first and third lines of this passage.
What the **** is wrong with you? What the **** is wrong with you?

I've provided more than enough reasoning for my opinion. In a competition thread where I'm making a guess. What you're doing is trolling. I'm not a mod, but I suggest you reread what you wrote and realize your own god damn agenda.
