This is different.
We know these guys know how to win. 100 percent. This isn't a "potential" home run.
Clark hit a home run. Now it's just a question of is it a solo shot or a grand slam.
What's interesting is that even early Pioli ballwashers like myself (embarrasingly, admittingly) hated a lot of his early decisions. But we supported Pioli out of faith that he knew what he was doing.
This isn't the same. Reid is making a lot of really good moves that fit what we want. The only move we're sort of neutral about is the Sutton hire, but there's potential for that to be a good hire too.
