Oh, please. We're winning the series, so what does it matter that we didn't win this game? Everyone always has better ideas than the manager, no matter who the manager may be. In this case, it's the guy that got them here in the first place, after being in last place just last season. Give it a rest already. Nobody can do a better job than Farrell has done with this team.
Just becuase nobody could do better, doesn't mean Farrell has been perfect and couldn't do better than himself.
I don't pretend to be smarter than John or Ben, but that does not stop me from feeling Nava should have been playing and should start the rest of the games in LF.
Hey, I love Nava. I think he's been great. I honestly think he would be a great starter on any other team. It's actually a shame he's on a team that has so many good outfielders. I mean for him, not for us.
Yesterday, I believe, people were questioning pinch hitting for Drew. That was until Farrell said that Drew hurt himself, and that was why. My point is, you don't know on any given day how anyone is doing or feeling. The manager does. To say that Farrell can improve IMO is just expecting perfection all the time. No one is going to be that guy. It's unrealistic.
