O'Dowd had a rough start as GM by making some bad trades, but I feel like he's gotten a lot better and should be able to see all the young talent he's brought into the organization develop. Ownership, however, will certainly be too cheap to afford to keep the team together.
Hurdle is a terrible manager and I'd like to see him fired during the season at the first sign of falling out of the race.
Didn't O'Dowd come in part of the way into that season? I could be wrong.
