Back-ing Out

The Arizona Diamondbacks have pulled a George O'Leary, firing new manager Wally Backman after four days at his"dream job," once revelations came to light about drunken driving and spousal abuse arrests that Backman had failed to disclose.

The saddest thing of all: managing the Arizona Diamondbacks was his dream job. If he's got a dream to be a manager, shouldn't the job be with the Yankees, Mets, or Cubs, or some other team that at least existed for the majority of his career?
