On Sam Perlozzo's firing
There are more problems on the field than can be fixed by simply firing the manager. You think firing Perlozzo is going to change the attitudes of ... [Melvin] Mora and [Jay] Gibbons?
One thing that [will be] fixed immediately will be the handling of the bullpen. ... The team can only get better without Perlozzo.
One thing about Sam I never liked other than his handling of the bullpen was he never did anything to light a fire under the team.
