Sometimes Different Doesn’t Equal Better
When a team struggles, it’s a natural reaction to point to the manager as the root of the problem. They’re simultaneously the most visible and most expendable part of the front office, and it’s become common to associate any success or failure with the manager’s decision making. For the most part, that’s why firing your manager is step number one in proving to your fans that you’re trying to improve.
Sometimes, the change helps. Buck Showalter was fired by both the New York Yankees and the Arizona Diamondbacks, and the next year, his old teams won the World Series. More often than not, though, having a new face in the dugout doesn’t change anything. Sometimes, it can even make matters worse.
I bring this up because the Brewers are in danger of becoming one of “those teams” — an organization that’s quick to fire its manager whenever things go south instead of working to actually fix the problem.
