His ass needs to earn it. He's good with managing ego's so they say?i dont know, but as far as in game managing, dude sucks. If Mattingly was the Cardinals coach and made some stupid ****ing moves Hamas would be cursing him up! lol
Ill just go into 2 plays that could be harmless but very very costly, one worked out, one failed miserable. First one was Uribe bunting in the bottom of the 8th inning with 1 guy on base. He called for a bunt x2. Uribe borked the bunts, then when they call it off, he hits a 2 run home run, basically won the series. Had Uribe not borked them bunts, possibly go to game 5 and anything can happen. Uribe bailed his ass out.
Play 2. Takes Hanley out in game 2 in like the 8th inning. So. Cardinals walk Gonzales 2 times with men on base to pitch to Michael ****ing Young. Both times he failed miserable. Had even a hurt Hanley been in the line up, they would not have walked gonzales and we dont know where the series would have wound up.
He's done this type of shit all year. There was a reason why they were calling for his damned head earlier in the year. Couldnt get his guys to play til a 22 year old Cuban who hadnt yet been in the USA for a year caused a spark and they ran with it. Shit had nothing to do with being a good manager.
If he wants that contract, he needs to show something in 2014, if he doesnt want too, cut his ass and promote within. I wouldnt mind see'ing Tim Wallach. Always liked the guy.
