    This guy is a good portion of the reason the RS lose games that they could have and should have won, especially games at home...  He goes too long with pitchers, refuses to realign the batting order, i.e move Pedroia out of the 3rd slot and doesn't seem to believe in bunting and moving runners.

     

     

     

     



    Did he win 73 games this year?  Why bother to change the line up.  Yes Dempster should have been taken out a bit earlier, but that Garnder fly ball was catchable if the coaching staffs didnt tell the OF to shift more to the left.  Ellsbury was not in the center field spot, and he was playing more on the left field wall which that was why Garnder got an easy long fly ball triple.  Had it was caught, it will be 2 outs and Boston will be up by one run instead down by one run!!

    You are trying too hard to defend. Keep it simple. Dempster stinks.

    You are so blinded. Do you even enjoy when they win?

    Do you ever hear me complain when they win?  Some fans are happy when they win , and upset when they lose. Others seem quite content to lose.

    Fickle stuff; Nobody's ever happy with the RS Mgr. For starters, BPs are not indestructible, as recent injuries can attest to; they have to be conserved carefully. Farrell, a former P coach knows this; for example he leads the league in by far in an unusual but telling stat; unnecessary warmups. To wit; Uehara only warmed up TWICE this season without coming in. The RS also have had a remarkable rebound from 2012.

    If the SP is inadequate, blame the FO.

    Re: John Farrell

    anyone who thinks farrell has been good with line ups must be blind or out of touch with reality. with cc sabathia on the mound (a lefty) he hit stephen drew (a lefty who has hit .195 against lefties this year ) ahead of middlebrooks a righty who has been one of the teams hottest hitters. On top of that he had gomes hitting in the 5 spot. (the guy shouldnt even be allowed to the play the field he is so bad defensively and has not exactly been mashing this season) drew ended up coming to the plate with bases load in what was a huge at bat against cc sabathia who was laboring and had drew got a hit, possibly knocked him out of the game. What does drew do? takes 2 strikes to go down 0-2, and to finish it off, he swung at a breaking ball way off the plate. had will middlebrooks (who homered off sabathia in the game and doubled later in the game) stepped to the plate in that situation, the outcome could have been alot different and thus could have changed the course of the game.

    Yeesh...this is just complaining for the sake of complaining.  They scored 6 runs off Sabathia...that wasn't the problem.

    Drew hitting ahead of Middlebrooks is fine...like most managers Farrell likes to alternate lefty and right hitters...it makes matchups for the other team more difficult when you get to the bullpen. Most of Yankee bullpen is right-handed BTW.

    Also did it occur to you that Middlebrooks' hot hitting may be partly a result of having pressure taken off him by starting him out in the 9 spot for a while?
