Hey, Sosh. Umm, I don't mean to tell you how to do your job but, well, I'm pretty sure that pre-game "closer doors" pep talk didn't really work. That is, of course, unless you were trying to talk the team into continuing to be inept offensively, which I'm pretty sure they would have done without a pep talk.
Let me ask you, Skipper, what is the point of a pep talk to invigorate the team going to accomplish unless you couple it with some actual changes? Seriously, few managers juggle the lineup more than you do, but in the midst of a pretty length offensive drought, the lineup changes have been relatively minimal. Especially to the middle of the order. Especially to the clean-up spot.
Dammit! Will you just drop Hunter in the order already!!!!
