Crane To Dusty: That’s The Ticket!
I know it’s hard to believe. A corporate suit telling an out and out lie? To someone’s face? Sorry dear reader. It is true. From the Trib:
Cubs Chairman Crane Kenney met with Cincinnati manager Dusty Baker in the visiting clubhouse before Wednesday’s game.
In their meeting, Kenney denied telling an audience at last January’s Cubs Convention there was “not a chance” the ’07 team would have won its division with “our former manager” still in charge. The remarks, however, were caught on tape with more than 500 fans as witnesses.
Anyone who has read this blog for more than 30 seconds (thanks local nursing home!) knows that I didn’t trusty in Dusty. But this type of thing makes me ill.
Grow (or borrow) a set and tell it like it is. Or how about some of that sensitive man of the 90′s stuff? Just tell Dusty that’s how you felt and sorry if it hurt his feelings. But lying right to his face? Weak. Why even meet with him?
And here’s perhaps a better question: with your company in the midst of bankruptcy, why are you even taking time to meet with former employees? Get to work, pal!
