Firing Mike is stupid.
Firing Mike is stupid.
YOUR ADD HERE!!!!
But most importantly, Mike needs to understand this is NOT little league. Not everyone on the roster MUST play an inning or 2 every game..... And even more-so, no other manager in history with a team this talented, has had this many lineups..... This team should have ONE lineup. PERIOD. And a backup lineup for the once a week to rest someone.
ANd Bourjous? The dude can play the field. But my lord, Ive been saying this for 5yrs now: "HE CANT HIT"... ANd hes done nothing but prove me right in MLB
Games played- 147 Plate appearances- 552 At Bats- 502 Runs- 72
Hits- 136 2B-26 3B- 11 HR- 12 RBI- 43 SB- 22 BA- .271 OBP- .327
SLG- .438 OPS- .765
So what are you basing your claim that "HE CANT HIT" off of? These seem like pretty good numbers to me for a guy that you claim cannot hit. Do you even know what you're talking about? Have you really been saying for 5 years that he cannot hit?
I'm not even going to get started on Bourjos with you. Just know you're wrong.
List of negative Lakers fans to watch out for this upcoming season on these forums. Even with Steve Nash or D12, they'd find something to complain about:
Lets take a look at his whole MLB career, as breif as it is. His .247 .703 career line is quite impressive.
Now lets take a look at his minor league career. And even though I have the stats, and their corrections here, I am not going to post them. I am going to make you do the work, and MAYBE, JUST MAYBE you'll learn something..... But I will hint to this, his minor league career, adjusted for his park factors, is pretty weak to boot. (And Im being kind saying "pretty weak")
I know it's tough when you argue something without doing research first. So I give you a pass this time. NEXT TIME, promise you will research and entire career and not just one season when determining a player's worth.
Because your thought process on Bourjos makes Brady Anderson a power hitter. And Adam Kennedy a batting title contender, and Fernando Rodney and Mariano Rivera equal.... LOL
Also, Fernando Rodney just had a better season than Rivera has had since 2008 and even that season is debatable.

GA16 with the K.O.
Scioscia does micro-manage a lot. And that's something that's very effective when you have a less talented, light hitting team like he's had a lot of those successful years here. But I think that when you have a team as talented as we have now, they have to be allowed to play out and let their natural skills win games instead of trying to figure out ways to make sure their deficiencies don't lose the game, if that makes sense. He's never had a team this talented, and I think he needs to adjust his approach to in-game managing a bit to reflect that.
He shouldn't be fired, but if he loses the team games again because of his micro-managing and they miss the playoffs then maybe he should.
Half the games I watched he was calling pitches from the dugout. If you have to do that, time to fire Butcher. We've been on a steady decline the last 3 years and being hamstringed by bad contracts on bad players.
If Scioscia couldn't manage a team with this much talent, he needs to go. Hire Fracona.
