The Angels' Selection of Rader Is Already Attracting Criticism

November 19, 1988

Oh, no. Doug Rader is named manager of the Angels? I've lived through this once already, as a Texas Rangers fan during the first Doug Rader era, and believe me, losing was the least of it. The guy is a bully and a bad manager.

Toronto's Tom Henke and Oakland's Dave Stewart have gone on record about how Rader stunted their careers at Texas. Gene Autry and Mike Port picked him for his "experience?"

What a joke.

I would ask that the stories on his "eccentricity" and his fondness for Hemingway are kept to a minimum.

Because they're going to have a hollow ring come Aug. 1.
