In Response to Re: Coming from nowhere
[QUOTE]Alibi, if they fired the manager, you might have gotten that "attitude, desire, and believing." But you are as stubborn as the organization thinking it would magically change the atmosphere of the clubhouse/dugout. Again, not about BV's ability, it's about the team not responding to him.

It's both. He isn't the worst tactician in BB, but also nothing special. But it is also more than the fact that the players don't respond to him. It is the fact that he is a walking distraction. Almost like that mental disease where you can't control what comes out of your mouth. Just as a small sampling of things that didn't need to be said-
Bard is not throwing enough changeups
Doubront has no out pitch
Shoppach complained about not enough playing time
Somebody snitched on me about Middlebrooks.
Buchholz refused to change his schedule
Crawford's elbow is bothering him.
Alcohol is banned from the clubhouse, maybe, kind of, sometimes...
And it goes on and on. The players aren't allowed to focus.
