Quote of the Day

Tim Marchman, on that whole "the manager needs to light a fire under the players!" fallacy:

The way I've always figured things, if it was a good idea for major league managers to start screaming and playing the fool every time things went south for their team, major league baseball teams would start hiring really far-gone crackheads, who in my experience are always willing to hoot and holler at the least provocation. Since no general manager has ever been seen soliciting résumés on the Q train, it seems that they have accepted what should be obvious to everyone: Yelling at grown men is stupid and counterproductive.
If there were any truth to this talk-radio-based nonsense, wouldn't Tom Coughlin be the greatest coach in NFL history? Instead, he's about to be fired, again.
