Since Rizzo took the helm, he has made exactly two "panic" moves that I can think of.

Why is random distribution of terrible starts not logically plausible?

Again, as nice as it would be to be better than middle-of-the-pack (which we already are, arguably)

The old "work on your reading comprehension" maneuvre, on the other hand, is both manly and mature.

Very little this team does implies any familiarity with "geekermetrics".
