Bad Plan, Joe



The minute I saw the line-up today, I knew we weren't going to score more than 2 runs.  Like last year, when 2 runs was our most common production on offense.

When we trot out Gardy and Jacoby in the 1,2 slots, something goes limp.  They have been awful for years, batting in those positions.  The logic was decent, but the results never were.  And it is contagious.

If you look at the winning streak, what made it work was other combinations at the top the order.  Sanchez hitting second, Hicks hitting second, Jacoby batting 5th, sometimes 4th.

But Joe went back to the original, " this will make us impotent" binder, and dialed up Gardy, followed by Jacoby.  And our offense went south.

Immediately came the strikeouts, the groundouts and the fly balls.  Immediately came 12 straight Yankees, down in order, with the perfect game broken only by an infield slow-roller to the middle.

Don't ever do this again, Joe.

It is an antiquated plan, doomed to fail.

Burn that fucking line-up.

We need the " slash and dash,"  the excitement, the reasons to hope.

Not the same boring old crap that has always failed us.

Joey Binders was at it again. I was at last nights game and that lineup was embarrassing, awful, pitiful, garbage -- not to mention just plain not good.

Jesus H. Christmas, can we get an actual manager? Please? This guy loses more games for us than Nick Rumbelow.

The "empty sack" binder, The "Let's resticle those testicles, just for today, and pray for something different" binder. The "definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results" binder.
