You're probably right, but deal.

Make it a Winter, brotha.

The only reason I say Spring is because I bought a case of Winter Lager and White Christmas from my guy today and asked him when they usually stop getting shipments...he says they usually stop around January 15th and start getting the first batch of Spring on the 16th sick.gif

October and Spring are the only two I really cannot drink laugh.gif so I'll stock up on this and wait for the Summer.

I could see them doing that. Amaro absolutely refuses to see that they need a full blown rebuild.

Curious to see where Konerko ends up.

My favorite is cherry wheat Samuel Adams...

Dan Uggla being shopped around I hope someone takes him we definitely need to pay a large chunk of the remaining salary.

I don't think so. He's inheriting a very good team. He's a great baseball mind, so he should thrive.

he's an ex-catcher, too. not that it's a huge deal...but catchers tend to have a great understanding of the game. at least the better ones laugh.gif

Mike Matheny. Although we learned he's overly loyal to his starters. His refusal to utilize Shelby was a minor difference in the series.

Tavares, Wong to go with Wacha, Shelby. Sucio.

Miller wasn't the same pitcher he was over the first half. Don't remember the specific numbers, but his K rate was down drastically. There's a reason he wasn't used.

You honestly believe Shelby couldn't give a strong inning or two out of the pen? Even he was confused with his role and lack of use by Matheny.

Shelby was a relative unknown to Boston's lineup. Worth a try. Could have confused, dazzled.

Nobody is arguing with me about Matheny being overly loyal to starters though. He did it repeatedly. With Waino, Kelly, Lynn. Never learned his lesson despite a super strong pen. Yes, I'm mad.

I'm not gonna question a manager like that. If Matheny thought Miller could help, he would have used him.

I respect your baseball opinion, you truly watch a lot of games.

I think Matheny had a role in losing the WS for STL. Waino deserves a portion of responsibility. Lack of offense with RISP as well. Numerous factors but it starts at the top. You take away the Shelby angle, he still left his starters in too long. Waino, okay. Kelly or Lynn? Come on, man.

What games are you talking about specifically?
post #17903 of 77558
G3, G4, G5.

Should have pinch hit for Kelly with the bases loaded in G3.

G4 too long of a leash for Lynn.

G5 Waino should have been pulled after facing Lester. He had no business pitching to Ellsbury.

I can see both sides to this argument. Managing is a mixture of playing the numbers and feel. Good teams can make bad managers look good, example Ron Washington. Bad teams can make good mangers look bad.

If the Cardinals score more runs, none of this gets questioned.

There are valid points both ways, it's just an argument that has no conclusion. Poor results don't always mean the wrong decision was made. Good results don't always mean the right decision was made.

Players have more of an impact on the game than a few moves a manager may or may not make in a game.

Doing his best Kaner impression.

Boston got a steal when he failed his medical/physical.
