...we didn't call it baseball, we called it hardball - I guess 'cuz girls played softball. All I know is when you got hit by one, it hurt badly. Wilmington taxpayers, stand by for the imminent beaning. This thing is a done deal and the politicians are already in too deep.
If you aren't into baseball, you probably don't know who John Schuerholz is. Since he was the GM of my team growing up, I did. He took the team to dozens of playoffs and two World Series. Then, he left for the Braves,(and we cried) where he repeated his success. The politicians won't say no to this guy. They can't. They already have the taste. Little Johnny Barfield already has an autographed ballcap! ("Little Johnny" was meant as a joke for you bench warmers.)
As was reported by the politicians in Durham, a few may lose their jobs, but that is probably an acceptable risk. Do you really think anyone of them is paid enough as a council member, mayor, or commissioner to care if they lose an election?
Laura Padgett has made some noise about public referendums and seeking the publics input. In hardball..this is the set-up right before the double-steal, suicide squeeze, or sac fly.
