Questioning Scioscia.


Recommended Posts

`

Since the new guidelines prohibit me from doing it, I thought it was interesting that CJ was quite vocal in his displeasure with Mike's call to IBB LH Cano to face RH Smoak.

Have at it Sosh faithfuls and thank you CJ.

Soto, nobody said you cannot question Scioscia.

The problem we have is creating fire Scioscia threads after every loss or questionable call.

Calling him the fat man or any other derogatory remark and we'll send you packing.

It's the manager's job to make decisions like this, and I think it was a reasonable move on Scioscia's part. Baseball is like chess, and it's not up to the players to decide the next move.

Sciosia's job is to make decisions that give his team the best possible chance to win. He has to work with what's in front of him and Cano's reputation as a premier hitter dictates walking him in that situation.  Cano driving in two or more runs in that situation are far greater than Smoak delivering a bases clearing gapper.

Yep.

Smoak is not as good righthanded as he is hitting lefthanded too.

Jepson has made an effort to change his game with a much lower arm angle, I believe to become more deceptive.  Since he also has decent speed I think there was some basis for believing that maybe this would turn things around for him consistency wise.  Based on one appearance so far it hasn't worked.  I think he will get a couple of more chances, but I have to believe the leash is short.  DDLR and some of the kids will soon be breathing down his neck.

 

On the positive side, Shoemaker looked pretty decent tonight.  We may really need him before this season is over.  I hope he keeps it going.
