Kim Ng isn’t admitting her mistakes
By Neil Raymond
I’ve been very critical of Kim Ng as the general manager of the Miami Marlins. and unfortunately she keeps justifying my criticisms. She makes mistakes and refuses to admit and learn from them. She prefers to make excuses instead. It’s frustrating and insulting to the fans. She needs to take accountability for her actions and learn from her mistakes. Anything else makes her look incompetent and unqualified to do her job.
Kim Ng is refusing to take accountability for her mistakes.
Kim Ng said this about the current Miami Marlins season:
In a way she’s right, in fact I even wrote about how The Fish should’ve been much better than this. Taken at face value what Kim Ng said isn’t a problem. The problem however is the implication that the issues are not her fault. The Miami Marlins are a talented team, more talented than the results this season, still not as good as we could’ve been if she made better moves in the off-season.
Kim Ng never should’ve signed Avisail Garcia, it was a bad signing and it was obvious from the beginning. He was streaky, he wasn’t reliable and he wasn’t worth a multi-year contract. It was obvious to anyone who has been seriously following the game for even a few years. Even more than that, signing him to be a middle of he order bat was just plain stupid.
Did Bruce Sherman not give her enough finances to work with? That’s a possibility, but she still shouldn’t have signed Avi. She still should s used our starting pitching surplus to add an impact bat. If Sherman was the issue, than she needed to make it clear to him that as the first female general manager, she can’t be handcuffed from improving the team. The first female general manager needs to be given every opportunity to succeed.
If money is the issue, Kim Ng needs to tell Bruce Sherman how it affects her job performance and sets back the impact of being the first female general manager. If he fires her for that, she could literally ruin his reputation in the media. If it was just her decisions, she needs to be upfront about it. Accountability builds trust and makes her success extra meaningful, refusal to do so just ruins her perception.
