Robinson quote

When asked whether it concerned him that Cleveland on Saturday fired hitting coach Eddie Murray, Robinson said, "Guys don't get fired when they're leading the league in hitting and still in the pennant race. The guys who are let go are guys whose teams are hopefully out of it. Nobody in the world could do a better job -- not with this team. No one could ever do a better job than I've done."

 

Talk about being an arrogant, pompous a**hole. We're in the midst of a terrible losing skid -- in which our offense has been horrendous, and this idiot is too busy blowing his own horn? I almost hope we continue to struggle just so I don't have to see this guy in our dugout anymore.

For some reason, Bill Robinson doesn't think that he can be fired. Maybe he's right but I think it's time for a change in the hitting department. It certainly can't make things any worse! AND you are right...he does come across as very arrogant!

The first step in resolving a problem is to recognize you have one in the first place.

 

Clearly Bill is sitting back and resting on his laurels when he should be taking action.

 

"Nobody in the world could do a better job -- not with this team" - Not only is this arrogant, it is an insult to the entire team.

God, please fire this piece of s***, I can't stand Bill Robinson. If we are gonna start to point fingers I think he should be the first one to get cut out, second I think Jack has not been encouring these guys, the Alzheimer's must be catching up with him. I love the guy but man he looks all relaxed about this loosing streak and his comments are always something along these lines "well....I think we are doing fine, just in a little slump that's all, we'll pull through". Third I think the team is overall apathic, show no emotion and no fire, they are playing as if there was only a week left to play on the regular season after being out of the pennant race. Seriously I am starting to lose hope on this team, and it hurts me to see such a great group of players to be playing horrible baseball, and to see our starting pitchers doing their best to win a game and our offense just letting everybody down. f*** the Marlins for now. :thumbdown

True, but is still a very arrogant and asinine thing to say, he should have known better. He's as much to blame as our offense.

The coach does play a role. But I think most people here are going too far placing the sole blame on Robinson.

 

Right now, JP and Lowell are killing us out there. These two guys are fricking veterans that need to work out their problems, and this is not the first time that they have gone through a slump. In addition, there is more people on the organization that can help, if a player feels it needs more help.

 

This is how I see the situation (key players to our offense),

- Castillo - performing

- JP - sucking

- Cabrera - performing above expectations

- Delgado - performing well

- Enc - performing above expectations

- LoDuca - performing (could be a better)

- Alex - performing above expectations

- Lowell - sucking

- Lenny - performing above expectations

- Easley - performing above expectations

- Conine - performing

 

So 2 guys not performing, from a total of 11. How is Bill Robinson sucking?

Overall I would tend to agree with your assessment. But let's take a look at who is hitting when it counts....with RISP.

 

- Castillo - performing - .320

- JP - sucking - .170

- Cabrera - performing above expectations - .308

- Delgado - performing well - .255

- Enc - performing above expectations - .380

- LoDuca - performing (could be a better) - .271

- Alex - performing above expectations - .370

- Lowell - sucking - .234

- Lenny - performing above expectations - .400

- Easley - performing above expectations - .267

- Conine - performing - .133

 

So based on this we should change it to

 

- Castillo - perfoming above expectations

- Delgado - below expectation

- Easley - at expectation

- Conine - sucking

 

So clearly the list of guys not getting it done are Pierre, Lowell, Delgado (to a degree), and Conine

I just don't see how clutch hitting is the fault of the hitting coach.

 

I blame that to game strategy and approach. Probably more Jack's fault. How many times to we see too much patience on the plate with men on base? I probably see Strike one looking with RISP 90% of the time. Jack can say "I want us to be more agressive and start swinging at first pitches. . . ." That is NOT Bill's call!

Less targeted at you PBMarlin than the RISP rationale.? But this topic is really about Bill Robinson and I can't really find fault.? People just need a scapegoat I guess.? Can't take it out on their beloved Mikey or JP.

Not until they continue to suck under a new hitting coach.

They didn't suck last year under Robinson. Did they?

Lowell looked lost for I'd say 60% of the season.

 

The offense underperformed the whole year.

What is the defnition of "performing" then?

 

Look, I don't give a s*** about whether Bill Robinson stays or goes, but it just seems to me you don't want to hold the players responsible. Coaching in the pros is not as important as in college. These are professionals.
