In Response to Re: Let's get this out there right now....
No more of this left-right-left lunacy
But most teams do it
No more Club Med Spring Training
Would you say the same if Fielder or CC were on the team. That is what you are talking about out of shape players.
No more waiting for the big hit to manufacture a run
The only two teams in the AL that use the bunt are LAA and TB. Because they have speed and have had no power. Then you do realize sac. is no longer a big thing even in the NL because it has been shown you are throwing an AB away and sacraficing does not lead to more runs being scored.
No More resting players every six games
As stated by another poster Ells, Pedey and Gonzo played 158 games.
Tek and Salty split the catching.
Youk was hurt
Kalish, JD & Reddick split RF
Marco and Jed split SS
CC played 130 games
Texas had 4 guys Os had 3, NYY had 5, TB had 3 with 150+
So RS did not rest guys any more than any one else.
No more chicken & beer idiocy
Totally over blown by Boston Media
No more waiting to be down 4 runs to get a reliever in
Prove this please. Besides all the times I saw it happen it was about saving the BP for the long run.
No more abiding by Theo's sabermetrics nonsense...
Which all teams use.
Valentine may not be the savior - but he won't be the cause of a talented team underachieving...and for that I am excited and grateful... Happy Holidays all!
Just remember Valentines record as a manger is a losing record
