Magic September moments aren’t always generated by teams in the home stretch of a pennant race. Some events transcend the standings, evoke generations of memories and promise to echo for generations to come.

That’s not the way it works when you’re the principal owner. Your subordinates are the ones to pay the price when there’s failure on the field and questionable contracts signed.
