Why, oh why, do the owners of the Philadelphia Phillies persist in OK'ing the hiring of Larry Bowa over and over again?
The last time Bowa was hired he was brought in to admonish and belittle, er, I mean manage, the team. He was poison and was finally fired. Now the alleged brain trust (alleged where, you might ask?) has agreed to let new manager Ryne Sandberg bring Bowa back for a third time as bench coach. Extraordinarily stupid move on a team that is making more than its share of them lately.
I predict the first public "He's killing us" comment will occur around late July or early August.
