    Re: Francona is a dope

    it is most unbelievable that a team can collapse this way, from the top down
    at some point someone has to step in and tell this group of overpaid egos that the fans have paid to see serious baseball. When you look at players not running out possible hits(ortiz, reddick) or trying to be ultimate entertainer on the mound (papelbon) a good manager would yank these guys off the field and demand performance or replace in line-up, nope we just keep em playing.
    Payroll is how much???, a good triple A team would take them anyday, need a good "fall yard sale'' , really clean the house, and then try to get back in the spring

    harness and his ilk are arguing splits for marginal players when are team is playing .200 ball in the most important month of the regualr season...

    would you put MacD in that situation in the layoffs? hardly - Francona would be driven out on a rail if he did that - so dont do it now...dont replace a .300 hitter with a .200 hitter EVER

    honestly you cant fix stupid

    But taking out a Reddick for a DMac assumes that for the rest of the game, he will have the same L-R matchup. 

    Plus, Reddick was 12 for his last 24. Don't you think some of those hits came against lefties?

    Are you saying that Reddick should sit so mac can bat against lefties? I believe Red should NOT be hit for..hes good against either..Mac cant hit anyone this year..

    That is what I dont get... the team is failing and some sit and argue the merits of relying on players like DMac to bat 2nd and Reddick to bat 5th. Get Crawford in there, bump AGON to the 4 hole... or move Ortiz to clean-up, get your studs in order, throw right left right left out the window... 

    Lets just take a pitcher who holds lefties to .200 BA this year... what favor do we do that particular pitcher by goiung L-R-L-R?  I will tell you - we make it easier for him to get through the line-up. Every other batter is an out.

    I dont agree with HAVING to do the L-R-L-R thing all the time. I could care less what some of the numbers say..Sometimes my eyes tell me something different..Baseball, sometimes, is about a gut instinct or the good old eye test..Not always have to be about the sabermetrics..

    pitching off speed is a sign of a sore or tired arm. Bard - who is great for us- is done for the year, too much abuse by Francona

    What some of us, you and me included, don't realize is that Francona has information available to him that we don't. Did either of us stop to think that Reddick might be over tired from running the bases after all those hits? D Mac was probably not as tired, since he hadn't had to run the bases. I bet Harness understands this concept.
