Geren's report card?

How would you assess Bob Geren's performance as manager this year?  Now that the season is over (or will be over in a few hours).

First losing record in many years aside, I must say that I am pleasantly surprised that the team did as well as they did, and I give alot of the credit to Geren and his juggling of the line-ups, and in-game moves, and ability to work with what he had.  Was he perfect?  Hell no, of course not, and there is some room for growing.  But, he was working with a AAAA team most of the time, and also had a few players who couldn't get a clutch hit against a T-ball team.

It's a qualified endorsement, to be sure, but given what he had to work with, I think he did pretty damn good.  I still reserve judgement for next season, though.

Grade: B

Side question:  In your opinion, how would Ken Macha have done had he been retained?  Better?  Same?  Worse?
