tony stinks.
Defense stinks.


UGGGGGGH
He’s completely lost it. How do you pitch to Naylor with a .200 hitter on deck? Just like when he pitched to Buxton…

That’s a Little League loss. Shameful!

He’s a high risk data/feel manager with pitching sometimes. Like Madden.

We aren’t on these guys level and we haven’t had their daily conversations.

He may have been “saving” someone for tomorrow, or “trusting” someone today so they have confidence in HIS confidence or the whole team does the rest of year.

But over 161 games, I have faith that La Russa and Madden have won us 10-15 games more than an average manager would have. They are 10 game above replacement managers.

I don’t think you could possibly look at their body of work lifetime and come to any other conclusion.

They do some odd stuff and look stupid occasionally when it goes wrong, but I trust they always have a reason or a number to support their final gut decisions.

Sorry, he opted to pitch righty/lefty to one of the hottest hitters in MLB. The guy had just crushed a grand slam. The guy on-deck was right handed and barely hitting .200.

Absolutely idiotic… He better get his gut aligned with a functioning brain.
