Dharma Initiative Posted July 4, 2011 Share Posted July 4, 2011 (edited) I admit I liked the hire when it first happened, but now I see why the Marlins got rid of this useless *******.He refuses to fix the hitting situation! Our hitting is as bad as anyone in baseball and he just tips his cap to opposing pitchers and acts like everything will be fine. How Parrish is still our hitting coach is beyond me. Between Parrish and Pendleton we have inherited 25 HR McLouth, 25 HR Gonzalez, 30 HR Uggla, and yet they are all stinking. Heyward looks completely lost. Just look how far back he stands from the plate. We don't have anyone good in the outfield besides Prado.His bullpen usage is awful! Not only did he try to kill Venters, now he seems almost too scared to even try him. Why would we ever use Proctor in a 1 run lead???He never argues EVER! I know that arguing never gets a call overturned, but Jesus stand up for your players! It gets a little respect and a tossout can sometimes rally your players. Fredi just asks the umpire and shrugs his shoulders and heads back to the dugout.Squeeze bunts! They aren't working, stop using them!It doesn't take a mastermind to win the games we have with this starting rotation. It does take someone to manager the rest and Fredi has been completely awful at it. Even the biggest opponents to Bobby Cox have to respect him more while watching Gonzalez 'manage' this team.
