WOY, I agree that manager churn is bad. But that doesn't mean a manager who is clearly making poor decisions should be kept at all costs. Just as I gave him credit when the team won last year, I'm going to give him some flak when they lose. It isn't all his fault but a big portion of it is.
Sorry you don't fire a guy who won the division last year for being 5 games under .500 at the end of July, it's bush.
As for Lewis over Alonso because defense, he has a LOT more experience than Alonso and if Heisey is still banged up then Lewis is the sane choice if you're thinking defense first.
