The Other Fifteen

Eighty-five percent of the f---in' world is working. The other fifteen come out here.


Lou is acting stupid

Again. His latest comments:

"I'm getting a little concerned about a couple of our guys," Piniella said. "Look, we don't have much longer. I'm going to have to start getting them in there a little more often. Forget these days off."

I haven't been one of those fans that thinks that every decision Lou makes is right, because Lou is the one making it - but I have been pretty pleased with him as a manager as a whole so far. I'm starting to question that line of thinking.

    I don't necessarily agree with it, but since it's not going to hurt I'm not going to fret over it. I'll defer to Lou's managerial experience here.

    Lou has done plenty of things I don't agree with. The biggest one so far is complaining about what he doesn't have ("I need a LHB lead-off MI") rather than maximizing what he does have (i.e., hitting DeRo 2nd and Riot 8th).

    This sounds like a plea to Jim Hendry to go ahead and trade the whole farm for Roberts. After all, Hendry might be the GM here for quite a while (depending on the new owner), but Lou likely won't be here more than 2-3 years. Hendry is trying to be prudent, but Lou doesn't care about the farm.
