Bonifacio is quickly becoming a real NAT. Alot of K's and a low average.

Lenny Harris' advice was bound to sink in eventually.

Our weak hitters are hitting WAY too many balls in the air.
Yep, EB, Harris, and Guz have done that all freaking game.

Time for Joel to lose it. He's no closer.

Manny has managed a TERRIBLE game. He's just as responsible for this loss as anybody.

This was bound to happen. Let's not overlook the fact that he is still a work in progress.

They should make EB do pushups every time he hits a fly ball

I said that after his first magical outting.  Any player is good when they first arrive because Lenny hasn't had the opportunity to ruin them.

This was not Hanrahan's fault.  The worst thing you can do is bring a pitcher in with two outs and the bases loaded.

I can agree w/ this. Hanrahan is not the type of pitcher (yet) that you want to force to throw a strike.

Let's see if Alyssa Milano can bring us some good luck:

Hanrahan = minor league garbage.

If Rivera had stayed in this game we would have won.

So far, Alyssa isn't doing any good.  Hopefully, Randy's visit does some good.

He looks like  a freaking nag out there. No confidence. You can tell he is beaten.

Good thing that WAS foul!  We could be looking at very good scoring position!

Hanrahan just shows that you have to have more than good stuff to be a closer. He doesn't have the mental makeup to close.

I think this gives Lenny way too much credit. I don't think he's the most influential person in the world. Bonifacio's approach/swing hasn't changed at all since coming here. He's just not making very good contact right now.

absolutely correct.

Cordero has the mental makeup, but he doesn't really have the stuff, imo.

Hanrahan has the stuff, but not the mindset.

Everyone pretty much seems to die though when they arrive.

He's probably worshipping at the altar of Colt Brennan.  :rofl:

his average went from under 200 to above 300, it was bound for a correction

Kapler gave us a gift by swinging at a horrible pitch.
