Grady Gets the Shaft

Grady Little is out as the Dodgers manager.

As you may recall (though I doubt you do), I called for Grady to be fired after the season ended. He made too many bad moves this year and ultimately lost control of the clubhouse.

This isn't how it was supposed to go down though. I'm now in the odd position of feeling bad for a guy I wanted fired. If the Dodgers were going to fire Grady, they should have done it. Instead, they affirm he's the manager and then proceed to spoon with Girardi and Torre. Poor Grady was left to twist in the wind, and today after reading the writing on the wall, he quit.

Whatever the results on the field were, Grady is a decent guy. He deserved to be treated better than this.
