In response to dannycater's comment:
Farrell was getting slammed by someone on the game thread for yanking Webster when he did. Farrell gets slammed for his lineups, his use of the rookies, his overuse of the veterans, etc....
Yet, last night, he brings in the lefty and Layne gets the out on hard hitting Calhoun
He had Mujica warming up and then it was Tazawa who came in the 8th because maybe he knows Mujica is still not a better option than Junior, who granted has slipped this year. He brought in Bradley in the 8th to take Nava's spot as Holt went to RF and of course JBJr makes 1 nice running catch and a game-saving catch for Uehara in the 9th....
So, how bout people get off the guy's case. The team is 15 games under .500 because of collective player failures on offense, the lack of a real solution to both Ellsbury/Salty at the start of the season. As far as the pitching staff goes, I think he's been 5,000x better than Tito in terms of when to pull someone or when to go to someone. He is a good manager, and I'm glad he is Sox manager.
And Napoli homers so why do we play him now? Well, because he still hits for power on a powerless team...
Hey Danny, I respect your opinion of Farrell, I don't agree with it, but I respect it. Personally, as most already know, I think he stinks, but that's only my opinion.
I would never tell any other posters what to post about a certain person associated with the team; you should do the same.
If you think Farrell stinks ? Who is your manager that would make this team good? I respect your opinion but it stinks. What your saying is ...A very good team does not make a bad manager stink? Personally , everyone knows your views stink and that might be your problem.
You are speaking for "everyone"? Laughable.
I also think Francona was a mediocre in-game manager. Farrell is a little better, but still is making too many mistakes. There is not a manager on earth who could make this team a good team.
WE ARE ALL JUST POPPYSEEDS IN THE BAKERY OF LIFE
That pretty much says it all. What does he do, play for the win, joke intended, or play the kids in preparation for next year and not worry so much about the win.
This year is over, a miserable failure. I think this year should be spent building for next year so I'm a whole lot more relaxed about this season.
