In response to redsoxpride34's comment:
Lets start with todays line up, he has ross hitting 7th and betts 9th? Ross is easily the worst hitter on the team without question. Even beyond that, and the reason I started this discussion, why is christian vasquez who went 3-4 with 2 doubles and 3 rbi last night not in the starting line up? Especially since there is a lefty on the mound and he is right handed. Its these kind of moronic decisions that have hurt the sox all year. When your young catcher of the future has a big game, you don’t sit him the next day. Plain and simple. Especially when your back up is hitting .173. In case he didn’t notice, we need to score runs. I really hope the sox FO thinks strongly about firing farrell after this season. I just don’t see anything he adds to this team. He’s not a good game manager (case in point holt trying to steal 3rd with 1 out last night) he continuously struggles to handle pitching changes, changes the line up everyday and makes so many bad decisions. We are at the point where we are letting the kids play, so let them.
I made a point last night that Vazquez, even though he had 3 hits, might night start tonight. This is how Farkell has been managing all year. It even makes it more amazing the SOX won it all last year with this incompetent managing. Toronto is still laughing.
