2) Putting in Marte in the 10th. He is pure shit. Motte needed the damn work and at his worst is 752% better than Marte.
I'm not ready to throw Methany under the bus. It seems that everyone who played with him from team mates to coaches thought he would make a great manager. Current core players like Molina and Wainwright love him as a manager.
Thats going to get a full season of OJT before I start calling for the guys head.
Besides I wanted Tony gone and I got my wish and a WS title. I really got no right to be bitching and calling for the managers head at the break.
