May 2, 2011: Monday Morning Manager
World news dominates the headlines, but there’s always a little room for baseball discussion.
1.) First there was a 5-5 homestand, now a 1-2 road trip (so far), and then a 7-9 overall since Josh Hamilton went on the DL – is it time to push the panic button?
2.) The Rangers have committed 8 errors in 7 games, they have the 3rd highest error total in MLB, and are 29th in fielding percentage, what is the problem, more importantly what is the solution?
3.) Matt Harrison’s last 3 games: 11 1/3 IP, 18 Hits, 14 ER, 8 BB, 7 K, 11.12 ERA – what is your recommendation to Ron Washington and Jon Daniels?
4.) Any additional thoughts on Neftali’s comments about starting?
5.) How about those Cleveland Indians?
