I love Manny but there have been many situations this year where his over patience with situations has cost us many games. Letting Chico start another game is an example. Clearly he will go to AAA tomorrow. Everyone saw it several weeks ago but he had to give us several lousy outings to prove it to Manny.
My hope is that when we have more talent next year he will not waste games trying to be patient with players that should not be playing.
