I know its the players but part for our decline is Bob Melvin. Why does this guy wait so long to sit a struggling pitcher down..and its every time! I guess he expects for a pitcher to all of a sudden do a 360 and start throwing good after having being tee'd off on. Today I wouldnt have even let sonny grey play the 2nd inning, i knew how this game would end up. another example is doolittle, this guy blows it every time now. The other day it was a grand slam against straily with 1 out..give me a break!
Our offense isn't gr8 either, obviously. Reddick is looking at perfect pitches instead of smacking it, cespedes swinging at grounders, I hope it hasnt rubbed off on Donaldson, Smith hasnt done anything since...? , and we have young in there with a .190 avg. He couldve been replaced by Hiroyuki, we spent 6.5 mill on him!
