They just showed Manny sitting in the dugout...is it me or does he look totally lost?
I keep telling myself that Fick stays around because he gives us an extra catcher but how long can that continue to save him?
I don't want to kick a dead horse, but remember when i said Chico sucked? His game vs the Mets was a mirage.
No it's not just you. I feel the same way when I see him sometimes.
Most MLB teams have lousy #4 and #5 pitchers. Chico's a rookie who's never seen AAA. Manny has pulled other pitchers an inning early when they were doing well. But he has been willing to yank someone in this kind of mess, but FAILED to do it tonight.... because of the CURSE OF THE BUNT HOME RUN! BURN DOWN THAT STADIUM...TONIGHT!!!!!!!!!!Maybe it's this thread that's died? ... Maybe we should start another since that bunt home run has clearly cursed this one ...
Flores pinch hitting here? Why? Speigner hasn't pitched very much at all lately, why not let him pitch 3-4 innings?
I'm inclined to give him a pass - it's his first big league job and he doesn't exactly have a stacked line up to work with - he gets this year and next for me - I'm not going to bash him for trying to make a silk purse from a sows ear ...
I'm with you there. It was just an observation/opinion on my part. I sort of feel bad for him. But he knew what he was getting when he accepted the position. It's possible that he is only keeping the seat warm for someone in the near future.
I don't know why we didn't go after Joe G former Marlins skipper. He did a miraculous job with the Marlins, but got the ax for whatever mind boggling reason.
No I don't mean it that way - I mean it in a way like, he's thinking: "My God, I've done everything I can...this team is just too crappy...I can't do anything else to make it even halfway decent". That's the look I meant.

I hear what you're saying ... but I really hope that's not what happens - if he's willing to put in the work (and at times) misery of this season ... then he deserves a real shot to manage a club at full capacity ... He seems like a really good guy - young, enthusiastic, fair, professional, I'd like to see this organization do the right thing by him and give him a real shot ...
Last Play: F. Lopez grounded out to second
You should just cut and paste from now on ... no need to retype ...
I agree, I've seen the same look on his face at times. This team is not very good and to compound that their luck is just awful (examples from tonight: They face a starting pitcher that they can actually hit but he leaves in the 2nd, Padres bloop hit on the line that made that a costly inning).
