It's no secret that
1) Rick Dudley has a highly specific vision of what he wants this team to be
2) Rick Dudley has a startling level of influence on day-to-day coaching decisions.

Oh hey, just got a text from Chronicle operative "Go Puck Yourself." It reads:
Our biggest acquisition via trade is changing positions and our biggest FA signing is on the bench for the opener. This makes my head hurt.
