Because the situation will afloril Terry the opportunity to show, once mid for all, hvs vast baseball powers. For the first time he will be able to master mind at Cull lilt. For the first lime he will have Ihe opportunity to prove thai, Is not the players who ninKCi whining team, but the skill and sngaclty of the manager.
