Today was the last straw for me. How in hell can you send a 35 year old Kendrick, coming of an Achilles injury, with no outs, down by three, and the heart of the order coming up?

I'm all for being aggressive, but not for being stupid.

Let's put up some clips of his worst sends.

Gotta start with sending Werth in Game 5 in 2017 vs. Dodgers.

A monkey can do better then Henley.  I don't understand why he survived the 2017 NLDS.

If someone can find that video of that play you will see him standing up the RF foul line. Why the 3B coach is standing there on that play, I will never understand.

Today's was inexcusable.   For this year, the Adams one was pretty bad, but, at least a little explainable by 2 outs and the pitcher coming up.  Were there other bad ones this year?  Does a 3rd base coach have other coaching responsibilities or is that his only job?

He's got the important job of giving Zimm the take sign on the 1st pitch fastball right down the middle

Eaton returned in 2018 from the knee injury and Henley sent him 1st to home and he injured his ankle at the plate.

I don’t know how this guy still has a job. So many gaffes over the years.

This seems like a big stretch blaming him for this one.  The stop sign came up in his way to third and he rolled it rounding the base not trying to stop.

agree... we’ve gone through like 40 first base coaches since Matt William’s tenure began but this guy somehow survives
