The Rays are 4-9

The Rays have a far superior pitching staff than the Angels so for that reason underperforming is unacceptable and the sole responsibility of Joe Maddon.

 

He should be fired, after all they failed to make the playoffs last season and can't afford to continue losing like this. I am sure we are all in agreement with this.

Not only that, their team is completely sunk for the next decade with hundreds of millions of dollars in salary committed to aging players and they have zero trade chips in the minors to rectify the situation ... oh wait  :(

I see the point you are making Eric, but the situations surrounding the 2 teams are totally different.

 

 

 

I don't see the point. One team that constantly overachieves with a bottom 5 payroll vs. team that underachieves with a top 5 payroll.

 

2013 Payroll $142M vs $57M. 

 

Apples to oranges would be an understatement

Not only that but the Rays were in playoffs in 2010 and 2011 in the AL EAST of all divisions, while the Angels sat at home.

It is about perfomance not payroll. Either you are taking advantage of your teams strengths and not making stupid substitutions to pile drive your team into last place or you are out. Maddon is an incompetent manager, never won a World Series, missed the playoffs last season and is determined to ruin the Rays again this season. He needs to be fired.

YK, Maddon is the quintisential micro manager. He makes Scioscia look like a wooden indian as a coach with all of his lineup changes and in game substitutions. None of it makes any sense. 

 

And then Monday he left Joel Peralta in to get shelled in the 9th, serving up a meatball to Napoli to lose the game. He should have pulled him when he saw Peralta walk Pedroia. Instead he keeps with Peralta, what was he thinking! He could have won that game if he understood how to run a bullpen, Napoli has a career 1.006 OPS in Fenway, you can't pitch to him with a guy like Peralta. 

 

He must have been thinking about a slice of key lime pie after the game was done rather than trying to win the game in a crucial series against his division rival.

Like pile drive the Rays into last place. Good luck to them trying to catch the Red Sox who are already running away with the division.

 

Obviously this is a joke thread because Maddon is the best manager in baseball. He's done amazing things with a small payroll.

This is probably the worst comparison you could have used to make your point. Angels and Rays are light years apart in terms of comparisons.
