Bloomburg on Melvin: “Here’s a baseball man moonlighting as a businessman. And failing miserably.”

Bloomberg.com has an interesting article concerning Doug Melvin. A discussion that I have been having for years regards the fact that many, if not most of the guy’s running the MLB teams have no idea what they are doing. They don’t know how to be competitive and successful. More of that later. Here are two of my favorite quotes from the article, which can be read in its entirety here:

[Melvin]…shows a complete lack of understanding of a
superior athlete’s desire to feel wanted and the business behind
baseball in the Bronx, especially at this moment in franchise


Let’s hope the businessman explains the basics to the
baseball man.
