Why exactly did we sit Freddy Sanchez yesterday? Mark another one down for stupid moves on Pirates management. Guy is smacking the hell out of the ball and we sit him. Dumb baseball. There is no excuse for that guy to be sitting on that bench. None at all.

Went to the fathers day game today, wonderful day and a great game up to the 7th inning. We should of been winning if Bay had a head on his shoulders and realized the play with the run down. Perez just blew up and the error he made sealed it. Once we brought in Burnitz to PH and Vogelsong to pitch it was obvious we were throwing in the towel.

I think the reason you're seeing more "hot" guys sitting these days is because of the new policy on performance enhancing drugs; it's not limited to steroids, it also includes amphetamines. With fewer guys taking uppers, the grind of the season will wear them down. Resting guys was common during the 40's/50's/'60's; very few players played 154/162.

Well, it's not as if Freddy is putting up HR numbers. The guy is putting the ball in play. Last I recall, steroids do not help with eye/ball contact. Just ask Barry Bonds. Once again, no excuse to sit Freddy Sanchez.

To echo on a previous post...WHY would Freddy Sanchez...one of the leading hitters in the league...sit down so that Joe freakin Randa can play 3rd base????

inexcusable....I liked the hiring of Tracy...but I had no idea he was this big of a wimp...at least McClendon had some fire....I need to see Tracy get fired up over...something...anything....

Hey BNG. I have a better idea, if Tracy gets fired, promote Tim Leiper from the Altoona Curve, he's got a heck of fire with him every game. Anytime the umps are messed up something that was obvious he's runs out and gives em a piece of his mind. He's even been tossed like 5 or 6 times this year(I think).
