Spectacular Colossal Failure

The Angels series was extremely disappointing, but tonight is the kind of game that gets a manager fired. Tonight was the most amazing example of manager ineptitude I think I have ever seen.

I'm not second guessing John McLaren here, I questioned every move he made tonight while he was making it, hell I predicted a couple of his idiotic strategies before he did them. This was a brutally managed game. Just abysmal.

Raul Ibanez hit cleanup tonight against a left handed starter. Ibanez is slugging 351 against left handers. He has one homer against lefties in 131 at-bats.

McLaren used Sean Green for three batters and lifted him with the bases empty.

In the middle of a 6 game losing streak, McLaren has given a start to a no-hit, all glove second baseman and tonight a powerless second baseman with the approximate range of the Diet Pepsi machine, all because his best second baseman missed a tag on a terrific pop-slide at second base in a game the team lost 6-0.

Sexson continues to start over Broussard despite a public admission that Sexson is hurt.

I could go on and on about his bullpen usage, but I'll just leave it at this:

Rick "Cock-sucking, Mother-fucking, Furry Blond Fucking Gopher on his Chin-Wearing" White was pitching in the bottom of the ninth, with the bases loaded, while the best reliever in the GOD DAMN LEAGUE hasn't pitched in 6 days. 6 days! 6 Days!!!!!!!!!
What in the name of all that is good and holy is he saving JJ for? WHAT???

Enjoy your half a season of managing, John McLaren. I can't see you getting a shot again.

I started and trashed several posts in response to this game and the that McLaren has us on.


Baseball hell.
