Unfortunately, it is. There is a Baalke appreciation thread that pretty much addresses the same stuff, minus the urban metaphors (which I enjoy, by the way).
Not trying to get the thread locked or even merged (I generally don't care if people make new threads, mainly because the older ones have 200+ posts and things get lost in it).
Anyway, Baalke's approach is the smart way to go, as long as it continues to be successful. In the future, if, for some reason, it isn't going to work and we needed to go after a big-name guy, I would hope Baalke would be willing to switch the style to ensure success.
Mods, please lock and merge.
It is good to have the discussion of Baalke located in one place.
Have a central place makes it easier to follow the discussion. This thread adds little, if anything.
