    Oh, ok. He's not wrong. And it didn't sound like he's complaining. He was just pointing out how difficult it is to produce without regular playing time. Complaining would have been if he said he was disappointed with the playing time he was getting. He hasn't earned more time but I don't think he was suggesting he had.

    Not being more aggressive in going after Gio Gonzalez.

    Demoting his best left handed hitter off the bench in Smith instead of Keon Broxton who offers nothing.

    Also, his two prized acquisitions, Cano and Ramos, havent exactly been stellar. Yes, Diaz has been nice as our closer. Season would be an utter disaster without him. But he came at a huge price.
    True and completely unexpected. Actually quite shocking of their under performances by the Big 3. Yet, he had plenty of opportunity bringing an additional solid SP and adding quality BP pieces.

    Season not over, but lack of overall depth as I mentioned prior to season's beginning are killing us now.

    The solid teams don't have these problems when injuries happen - Dodgers, Cubs, Brewers, Phillies.

    Keon is not a major leaguer, must be DFA'd.

    As far as Carlos returning, I expect to have some positive moments, but he's not the player he was earlier in his career.

    Best non-trade SA ever made was trading for him in 2015 for Wilmer and Zack, we'd have never made the WS. Damn, that sounds like a long time ago.....

    Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores for a centerfielder who is now playing for us in Syracuse. Yeah, that Sandy A was truly the smartest man in the room.

    Where will Robbie Cano be playing in a few seasons?
