rferry Posted July 6, 2005 Share Posted July 6, 2005 As if a week or month ago wasn't. this is a sufficient amount of time to assess the employment and roles of certain Marlins. IMO anyone who is willing to stick with the current formula is too emotionally attached to its personnel to recognize changes need to be made. - Lowell has been terrible all year long. One well hit ball tonight aside, he needs to be benched. - Pierre is coming around, but is the best option we have at the leadoff spot or centerfield? - Leiter is terrible. His contract too large to eat. His pitching not suitable anywhere but mop-up. - Encarnacion is red hot. Do we keep him or sell high? I think the return of the trade and the potential of his replacement answer the question. - Forget needing to set the players straight, we need Loria/Samson/Beinfest to approach Jack and his complacent carefree pals to explain how important this season is to the team and the future of the franchise. - Bill Robinson may or may not be the problem, but what he is a convenient scapegoat. One that catches the attention of the team more than the Perisho, Bump and Riedling demotions ever could. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
