You see this face?
This is the face of the man who's going to get Doug Melvin fired.
It's not going to happen this season, of course -- Mark A. has made it more than clear that he's got a buttload of faith in Dougy Fresh -- but, if things keep going like this, I think Melvin's gone after 2011, and 2012 at the latest.
Why? Because if you can't identify young pitching talent in the draft (and have the staff in place to develop that talent in the minors), you have to be able to identify free agent pitching talent. We already knew that Melvin was a disaster with regard to the former. On the heels of the Jeff Suppan fiasco, the Randy Wolf debacle has all but cemented Melvin as a disaster with regard to the latter.
That ginger goatee is going to haunt Doug Melvin's dreams.
