Lets have a little balance voicing in both directions.




A manager is never as great as he looks when his team is winning and never as bad as he looks when they're losing.  I don't like Boone as a manager but that doesn't mean that I don't respect some of the things he has done.  


As far as the RISP thing is concerned, I think people don't really have any kudos for that because (as of a few days ago, I don't know if it has changed) we are last in the league in hitting with RISP.  It has been a huge problem for this team all year.  It's not that people are picking the occasional failure and making a mountain out of it.  The failures are the norm and it is a mountain of a problem.




The RISP failures are indeed the norm, and the occasional times they do hit with RISP does not outweigh the failures much of the time. It IS a huge problem, that is overdue to be properly addressed. It is a lack of disciplined at bats. At the very least, making productive outs is an imperative for any top team.


In today's analytics game, the manager has much less impact than those of the past. There was a term called a "push-button" manager that used to be popular. It was generally applied to managers of elite, powerful teams, (like the Yankees of the past) that all he need do was a push a button, and they would perform well.


Analytics has basically performed that duty today, as all a manager supposedly need do is follow the "science" of the sacred analytics. I put little blame on Boone when they lose, and give little credit when they win. Hal says it is the players, and I agree. Boone's share of the credit/blame, however, comes into play mainly in his handling, for good or for ill, of the pitching, and the sometimes illogical lineups.

I don't believe Boone makes the lineups.
