Gonzo and Hamilton are acquisitions of the current administration, and Edwin and Coffey are not. Coincidence? Maybe. But I'm not so sure anymore.
I understand what you're saying and I agree with some of it. We know there is a double standard with Narron and the players. EE doesn't run out a pop fly to 2nd, he gets benched. Josh doesn't run out a grounder he just gets a stern talking to from another player. But the difference is that if you bench a guy like Gonzo for making errors, you have to put Castro in there. He's also a veteran so you can't ship him to LOU. Coffey and EE were not performing up to par and that's why they were sent to LOU. Hamilton also can't be sent to LOU without risking losing him.
