I'm for bringing him back. These are well paid professionals, not high school or college kids. With all that's gone on this year, and if everything were repeated to the letter, except for Beckett and Lester's records. Just reverse their records, which still wouldn't be what should be expected of your #1 and #2 starters, and the Sox would be in or very close to the playoffs. That doesn't tell me the manager did a bad job, in fact it says just the opposite !
On the contrary. It tells me, had the starting rotation lived up to expecttations, the mistakes made by Bobby V would've been the difference between making or missing the playoffs.
Just because this team was exceptionally bad, doen't mean BV was good at his job.
just look at the second game against the Yankees this week and explain to me why he didn't pinch run for Salty or pinch hit for Iglesias.
If Francona had made those non-moves, we'd be hearing about it from you for a weeek.
when he did pinch hit for Iglesias a week or so ago, everybody jumped all over him
I'm pretty sure circumstances were different then.
Like the middle of an at bat, for instance? In the seventh innning, not extra innings?
