  1. Blacklabel

    Usually Yokohama chokes against the Giants, but this time it was the manager who messed it all up.

    Exhibit A: You have a batter who is hitting .150 or so hit a 3 run HR to take the lead after you couldnt score all game long. Yes! then what do you do? take him out of the game right after that in the 8th inning for a defensive replacement? huh? when he is probably the best defensive guy in your infield?

    Exhibit B: Your new ace pitcher holds Giants to 1 run in 7 innings keeping it a 1-0 game. You finally score 3, get the lead, its a long cold night, so now you take him out for the 8th! Let everyone cheer for him, he feels good, fans feel good, its a success, right? But no, you send him back out there and let him give up the tying runs on a ground ball to 2nd and a fly ball to center after 2 straight hits before those? Thats not the pitcher’s fault, thats the manager who should be taking care of him.

    Exhibit C: 3-1 in 8th inning, 2nd base and 3rd base no out. Ok you are gonna let your starter get out of it. Pull the infield IN!! But no…infield is back, routine ground ball to second scores one AND lets the other runner get to 3rd with one out, who then of course scores on a short fly to center, tie game.

    Exhibit D: Bring your closer in a 3-3 game. Your same closer who did well his first game but who is known for traumatic experiences against the Giants. Let him come in and blow the game in a non-save situation. Now he is mentally ruined for the season in the 4th game. thanks a lot manager :-(

    hahaha But things were supposed to be different this year…..(been saying that since 2002). Its not really the players so far, they have actually been winning in all 4 games. Once you get the lead, a lot of winning falls on the manager to actually….manage!

  3. EJH

    As a recovering BayStars fan (Mori was the first problem, then came the year Saeki batted cleanup based on seniority or something, but the Kudo signing was the final straw), I know that it is supposed to be different every year.

    Now I follow Ham where each game offers up a new form of mental torture. As bad as Obana may be (and I have no doubt he is truly awful), he is not match for the idiot Nashida. You are better off being a BayStars fan where no talent means no reason to get your hopes up.

  4. Blacklabel

    Yeah I know what you mean, but after last night the hopes are WAAAAAY up. Actually beating the Giants after being down 4-0 in the first inning? That never happens, so at least they didnt give up like they would in other years so thats a start!?
