Why would you qualify his not playing these two games as dislike? Isn't that being unfair toward Mackanin?
I don't advocate playing the likes of Freel at 3B over EE. But I don't know if not playing 2 of the first 3 games coming out of the AS break as a benching. Not sure that qualifies as such. It certainly doesn't justify calling for a firing. Especially when the manager's win-loss record is 6-3, and he's been given orders to experiment.
EE's defense has improved; but I am somewhat disappointed in his offensive production to date. He has been somewhat of an enigma to me.
