It has come to our attention that you see feeling quite comfortable in your Managers chair. The Team is 8 games over .500 and 4 games out of first place in the NL East. I’m writing you to say Don’t get too comfortable.
From your odd use of the bullpen to bunting with your young, got hitting catcher, you are skating on thin ice again. This team has played well this first half, in part, inspite of you.
A few questions for you:
1. Why is Jose Reyes playing? He is hurt, give him a few days off and DON’T let him play in the meaningless All Star Game.
2. Tie game, 1st and 2nd, no outs. Why are you bunting with Josh Thole? You have the bottom of the order up after him. AND he’s in the 6 hole to drive in runs!
3. Why are you giving into KROD and bringing him in during the 8th inning? He’s not effective as it is, so disrupting the bullpen to appease him is not working.
4. Why did you trust Alex Cora and Jesus Feliciano the other night when Jeff Francoeur couldve pinch hit and potentially won the game?
We look forward to your replies.
