Mental Lapses have cost us games

I am tired of the excuse we are letting the Marlins players use to wiggle through this very bad slump. You are a talented 25, but you have played extremely stupid. The coaching staff, except Rosenthal, has made some very dumb moves.

 

When you see runners get thrown out like we have as of late and games slipping late you know it is a focus issue and not talent.

 

Yesterday, why did Luis throw to first? Throw home and get the lead runner! Men at the corners with 1 out and a 3-2 lead is better than man on third with 1 out and a 3-3 tie. Also walking Floyd who did nothing yesterday? Jack gave them the game there for good. If you get Reyes at the plate and have men at the corners with 1 out, you can try for the DP which is a good chance that you Floyd in one. Instead you walk Floyd and get runners on for Wigginton which has been the Mets hottest hitter against us.

 

The players and coaches have been having major mental lapses, ownership and management sees this and will not make a move until it is sorted out. Why waste money and effort when the problem cannot be fixed by a move?

 

The team needs a big bottle of Mental Bismol because the mental crap outs are getting bigger, getting worse, and getting to the point where the team is back at .500.

They were playing the infield back, meaning the coaching staff advised them to let the tying run score. It wasn't Luis' fault. Not that I necessarily agree with that play.

I know that. If you look later in the paragraph, I said that Jack gave them the game there.

McKeon has alot of the blame, but so does Cabrera, Lowell, Castillo, Pierre, and Gonzalez. Cabrera in RF makes so many mistakes in a position that is so easy. Get someone out there to help him learn that position properly. Lowell yesterday made an error he doesn't usually make, Castillo has got cotton in his head as of late, Pierre keeps running at the worst times and killing rallies, and Gonzalez has improved but was having lapses baserunning a couple of games ago.

We need to start playing smart baseball, manufacturing runs, and playing defense correctly again. We are counting on being able to hit the 3 run homer, something we cannot do.

 

Let's play Marlins Baseball dammit!

I agree 100%. A ton of people on the board seem to have forgotten about the way our offense always used to work as well. I also have no idea why the defense has been so atrocious either...I get the Sox on NESN every night so I see enough bad defense as it is.
