That's a good point, deeg.  I suspect Mallee is just fine and is perfectly safe.  But I'll be fine with whichever direction management chooses to go, keep (expected) or change (shocker).

But hey, have I ever mentioned that there can be value in change-for-change sake?  The core have all heard Mallee's input.  Maybe a new voice would perk up some listening ears; or maybe a new voice might have a fresh insight or two to add; or maybe a new personality might persuade a core hitter or two to make a beneficial adjustment of some kind? 

Yes, sometimes change for its own sake can be helpful and even necessary, even when it's grossly unfair.  There may have been a physical hangover from last season but I think there's circumstantial evidence of a complacency/press clippings factor too.
