I said "give him another year", but honestly I think that he will need to be fired after that. He just isnt ready to manage a ML Team, he has ideas but honestly he has as many bad ideas as good. Many of the things he has done do not work at all and I am reasonably sure he is going to stick with them. Batting Kingery in the middle of the order for a good part of the season when he obviously was not ready to hit ML pitching yet, his batting order was sometimes seemingly designed for failure, players had no idea what they were supposed to do in many situations, regression of virtually every player. He isnt in the right job, he needs to spend some time as a bench manager and learn how to do some of the managerial things he either doesnt understand or isnt willing to do (to be different).
Bad manager, but sadly I assume we are stuck with him for another season.
