Is Bud Black the Norv Turner of MLB?

Is Bud Black the Norv Turner of MLB? Slow starts to the season, torrid runs in the second half. Premature evacuation around or before Playoff time. Add this together with a bland, ho-hum, low expectation attitude towards winning and what do you have? Bud Turner?

To Bud's credit, he has never had the level of talent that the window shutting Norv Turner ran into the ground. Bud's teams have overachieved and come up short while Norv's teams have underachieved and come up short. We will soon see what Bud Black can do with a talented team once the O'Malley group has added a few more pieces to this exciting young roster. For now he will remain Bud Black as opposed to Bud Turner. That is, until Nick Hundley misses a field goal against the Jets in the Playoffs.
