Until someone tells me they know someone in the front office and talks to them regularly, it's all bullcrap. These guys just aren't that good. It isn't Manny, it isn't any individual player. It the composite of all of them.
I agree but comments don't have to be about the whole. They can be analyzed individually and I tend to agree that there is something about Lopez that makes me lean towards believing he spaces out from time to time. There is a reason why it has been said about Lopez that he doesn't care or that he has the attitude of someone who doesn't care. But I definitely don't blame Acta for the players' inadequacies. This game is about the players.
