"You have to remember, as I told Peter, Buck is used to [his previous owners] George Steinbrenner, Jerry Colangelo and Tom Hicks. He's probably not going to understand if there is not communication," MacPhail said. "Plus, why shouldn't Peter have access to what's going on at the ground level during games? Do you think that Bill DeWitt of the Cardinals doesn't talk to [Tony La Russa]? That's idiotic to suggest for it to be any other way. There's something wrong if the owner doesn't talk to the manager."
