    I doubt that he’ll be missed. It might be prudent to hire someone from outside the organization to replace him. Some fresh ideas…. and a good start in another direction. The system is struggling right now.

    Good grief! How does the admin who manages schedules, travel plans and the like affect the play on the field? It is a real stretch to put a negative spin on that, but when every glass appears half-empty… The fact is that Cards lost a valued employee.

    The sad fact is the whole MiLB system dragged azz in last place. There is more than enough blame to go around. It would be interesting to hear some ideas as to people to blame, but they are all great and deserving of praise.

    C’mon now. No reasonable person would start their inquisition with the guy who makes travel arrangements, ensures players get paid, sets schedules and the like.

    I will be writing about the bad season in detail, but you sure as heck won’t see Tony’s name in it.

    Dentist waiting room blues is the reason for the rather snarky comment earlier. To be fair though, how was I supposed to know he was the CJ Cherre of the minors. His title was provided but not anything about what he did. Besides, given the results, it would not be unreasonably harsh to have the whole player development department fed to the jackals.

    By reading the articles on our front page, of course. That is the source of the original poster’s comment. 😉

    Coincidentally, I also paid a trip to the dentist this morning. I hope you didn’t get drilled…

    To be fair, I should apologize to Mr. Ferreira. I read “Player Development” and reacted in a negative manner.

    The system really struggled this season and any improvement should be welcomed. I wasn’t aware that Ferreira was only the travel agent and cashier. .Trying to describe Ferreira’s role with the Cardinals is challenging. Essentially, it was to do anything needed to ensure players are where they need to be and ready to play, whether schedules, rosters, logistics or payments – while on call basically 24/7.

    So good luck to him in Los Angeles and Mea culpa.

    I don’t blame him for bailing out.
