He's Never Faced a Lefty, So He Can't Hit Lefties

Get to know the Malek ownership group in this story in the Post today. I found this bit about Jeffrey Zients, the 38-year-old who would run the team if they are chosen, interesting:

Baseball officials, who spoke on the condition that they not be identified so as to avoid the appearance of seeking to influence the sale, have said they are impressed with Zients's energy and intellect, although they are concerned he has no experience running a baseball team.

Surveying the world of those who have had "experience running a baseball team" does not give one comfort that such a trait is a positive. See Smulyan, Jeff. And go read Lords of the Realm if you think that MLB doesn't need some new "energy and intellect" to help it avoid the mistakes of the past.

Yeah, and I want a guy like Jim Bowden as my GM! He's got real experience! Not some untested GM like oh Theo Epstein or Kenny Williams. Those guys couldn't put together winners. Oh no, sir.
