And Another Thing

File / The Journal Gazette
Wedge takes a tour of the TinCaps stadium. in January.

I'm so conflicted, doctor

So I hear the news that Fort Wayne favorite son Eric Wedge has interviewed for the manager's job in Pittsburgh, and two diametrically opposed thoughts immediately leap into my head:

1. Yippee!

2. Omigod, Eric, what are you doing?!

On the one hand, I can't think of anyone I'd more like to see grabbing the tiller of the baseball team I've rooted for all my life. On the other hand, I cringe at the thought of someone as decent and accomplished as Wedge taking this dead-end job. It's the ultimate no-win situation.

Guess you could say I'm torn.
