This time a year ago, I was exasperated with Luis Rojas. From platooning Brandon Nimmo on the basis of about a dozen ABs, using Amed Rosario and his lifetime .305 OBP in the leadoff spot and using relievers four times in five days – among other things – he was making mistakes that no manager should make. When new ownership came in, my hope was that a new manager would, too.
Of course, new ownership kept Rojas. And the beginning of the season, it seemed like most of the gaffes from the previous year were gone. Sure, there were hooks that came too early for SP but at least those could be explained by being cautious due to the shortened season a year ago.
However, it seems like as the year has gone on that there are multiple in-game decisions that leave you baffled. It would be one thing if it was a game here and a game there. But it seems to happen three times a week. Current conventional wisdom seems to be that in-game managerial moves are not as important as fans think. GMs value other things in a manager. That perception seems to be common around the league. But just because a perception exists – it doesn’t make it right.
