  3. Doc Blume says:

    Well done today, Julie!!! I enjoyed the show.

        So are you going to be on again tomorrow?

    On the topic of the playoffs: why did the Brave’s manager not pull his pitcher in the third inning, when his team got a lead? Why did he leave him in until 6 runs scored with runners on base? The announcers kept saying the pitcher would bat in the next inning-was it worth putting the team in a giant hole, to not have to pull him until he came to bat? Please tell me this guy is not being considered for the Cubs; the way things are going, the braves will lose, the insufferable Dodgers advance, and this guy gets fired from the Braves. I do not want someone who does not know when to pull the pitcher in a short series-we had that already…

    1. Doc Blume says:

      I’ve been a big supporter of Fredi Gonzalez in the past, but he made a pretty crucial mistake in that game yesterday. The Braves needed to win every non-Kershaw pitched game in this series in order for them to have a chance and should have tried to win that game last night regardless of the cost.

      I’ll chalk this one up to Gonzalez’s lack of playoff managing experience. It was almost Dusty Baker-like the way he managed that game yesterday. I would like to think that Gonzalez would learn his lesson…we’ll see in the days and years to come. Dusty, after all those playoff appearances never really has learned to manage in the postseason and that’s why he was fired last week.

    Supposedly, Manny Acta (and his career .400 or so winning percentage as a manager) is interviewing for the Cubs job today.

    1. juliedicaro says:

      Manny Acta is one of the few guys I really DON’T want.

      1. Doc Blume says:

        I’m not sure why Acta’s name keeps coming up for job after job after job…

        He’s the type of manager you replace when you want your team to move to the next level. You don’t hire him to get the team to the next level.

        Hinch’s name has come up again…and Rick Rentaria who I know next to nothing about.

          Does MLB still require the interviewing of minority candidates? Even if they are only token candidates?

          1. Doc Blume says:

            I don’t think MLB has ever had that requirement. In the NFL, the Rooney rule was created to ensure minority coaches were interviewed for open head coach positions. (Unfortunately if you look at things over the last couple years, it hasn’t helped.)

            1. FrankS says:

              Read the following article:

              http://articles.baltimoresun.com/2007-06-21/sports/0706210230_1_minority-candidates-rooney-selig

              It has been a directive going back to ’99.

              1. Doc Blume says:

                I had not heard of that…it’s slightly different from the Rooney rule because it doesn’t actually require a team to interview a candidate. A minority really just needed to be submitted on a candidate list to the commissioner. I don’t really recall the Cubs having any minority candidates when Sveum was hired….or Lou for that matter. In fact, there really wasn’t any candidate list when Lou was hired.

              2. FrankS says:

                Well, not that we are aware of at this time. But they may have submitted names to Selig that never received formal interviews. The article indicates that teams aren’t required to interview minorities, only that they had to consider them. And it’s possible unshaven tattooed white guys is a minority group in the eyes of Bud Selig.

    I really hope the Braves fire Gonzalez, and I do not want him considered for the Cubs! He did not know when to pull his pitchers, and cost his team chances to win.., And now, the Dodgers have bought themselves a spot in the playoffs… No class wins again….
