Good on ya, Joe Lacob

I just listened to the entirety of Joe Lacob’s interview with Gary Radnich, and I have to say I was very impressed by him.  I came away very willing to concede that I have been too hard on him, and that he understands far more about what he has on this team, and how to build on it, than he had indicated with his prior personnel moves and statements.  He knows he has something special in both Curry and Ellis, and will be loathe to break them up.

The details of this episode are already known to most readers, and I don’t intend to rehash them.  What moved me to write this post was Tim Kawakami’s take on the Jackson and Ellis situation: here, here and here.
