There wasn't a column for withering rebukes from former players, but so far we have two. From Huston Street, via SF Gate:

Bob was never good at communication, and I don't want to speak for anybody else, but it was a sentiment reflected in many conversations during the two years I spent in Oakland, and even recently when talking to guys after I left. For me personally, he was my least favorite person I have ever encountered in sports from age 6 to 27. I am very thankful to be in a place where I can trust my manager.

... and ex-A's catcher Rob Bowen ...

Finally the A's have realized Geren has destroyed a dozen pitcher's careers and doesn't have a clue how to manage a big league club

Yikes. I'm guessing that more will speak up, too. Some managers get fired, but then they go right back on the conveyer belt of managerial candidates. Like, oh, Bob Melvin. Something tells me that Geren isn't going to skipper a club again.
