    How long can Jocketty and Castellini watch these charades as they play the crowd and the losing stops now card with absolutely no substance to support their positions? Except another losing season.
    I lived in San Francisco for all of Dusty's tenure there, the whining here about his managing is louder than bombs when compared to what they said about him in the ten plus years he managed the Giants.

    It's as if he's the first ex player manager who doesn't read BP and have a dog eared copy of the first Baseball Abstract.

    Jr hurts us more with his statuesque defense in RF more than he does with his diminished offensive skills.

    If BP or Votto can't get to something in short RF its going to drop. Sharp singles to his right or left become doubles. It adds up and it kills us imo.
