The Fire Don Mattingly Thread

Personally, and I know I skew more in the newer line of thinking as it comes to pitching, if I had a nine man bullpen, nobody is pitching two days in a row unless 100% necessary. Build up guys' confidence by gifting them some high leverage spots when they're fresh. Could go one night with a Bleier - Floro - Yimi combo, the next with Pop - Detwiler - Bender, etc. Maximum 65 games per reliever, nobody should be on pace for a half season's worth of games out of the bullpen. Work more on matchups as well, and NOT simply "oh two lefties coming up let's bring in the lefty."

 

But. Eh.

You’re out of your mind for blaming Don for that /Mish

I mean, that part isn’t Don’s fault. That’s actually on injuries and the front office for not doing anything about the infield depth in the organization.

It is a little bit. Berti is a better baseball player than Isan Diaz and there's no reason why Diaz should play every day.

Actually, one of the many negatives of this year is that Jon Berti has reverted back to what he was during his minor league career.

Berti kind of stinks too. .180/.289/.295 in 143 plate appearances to be exact. We stink.

If Mish can’t say who is at fault, then why would I take his word for it. 

As much as I want Don fired, what if he’s being setup.  Just the injuries alone is causing me to be suspicious, with how players sit and when they return.  It just doesn’t feel right, like when they say they are injured and then the PH and play in the 7th?   Maybe the whole organization is incompetent.  

We haven’t seen it this bad, not even for Don until they hired Ng.  It’s something to think about.

Isan Diaz started another game on a major league team 

I mean tbh, there arent a ton of other options at this point.

Which is a more an indictment to how bad the infield depth is in the upper minor leagues.

No budget and no prospects even really remotely close to ready = depth issues.

Berti has been over exposed.

Teams have scouted him and know how to get him out.  Berti cant/wont make the necessary adjustments.

There is a reason why he was essentially a career minor leaguer.  It happens for a reason often.
