This is what you said:
well he's been in baseball for how long?... I'd say he knows what it takes to build a team and knows talent when he sees it
How do you know that Maddux is a good talent evaluator? What talent has he exactly evaluated? How do you know "he knows what it takes to build a team"? What teams has he built, or had a hand in building?
You are making wild assumptions, based on the fact that Greg Maddux was a great player. But being player, and being in the front office making personnel decisions, are two greatly different things. Under your qualifications, Mike Morgan is gong to be a great GM, int he future.
To suggest that Maddux could be a good pitching coach, makes sense...
because he has a history in the pitching department.
No stats...No facts...Just use common sense!
