They’re Hinch’s players, so fire him, fans say



Re: D’backs replace manager Bob Melvin with A.J. Hinch

• You are certainly firing the wrong person. Bob Melvin has been handed a bunch of losers and he is expected to make a good team from them? The ones needing “replacing” are the honchos who traded our best guys for these dimwits! 4152

• Unfortunately managers always pay for the failures of the players or the front office. In this case both are to blame. As they say, it’s easier to fire one guy than 25. RJW52

• Actually, if Hinch is in charge of player development, isn’t he the one that should get the ax? I can’t think of a single mistake Melvin made considering what he had to work with.

I haven’t liked the way the D’backs have treated their players, Gonzo. Randy J, O. Dog (Orlando Hudson). It tears me up to see all the young talent we had going (playing well for other teams). APACHECAT

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
