    More evidence in an endless torrent of evidence that the front office does not see what the average fan sees.

    Team’s best bat this year has been the player who’s done well when given a chance but kantoku doesn’t like.

    Team’s best pitcher has been the former first round pick who couldn’t get on the field because kantoku pulled him every time he made a mistake.

    Telling. Plenty of good players that management refuses to use.
