Ozzie calling out Ricky's lineups

Recommended Posts

Ozzie was clowning on Ricky's lineup featuring Delmonico hitting 4th in the second game of the double header. He questioned why Robert is batting so low. Says that "protecting" a rookie is meaningless and stupid. Also, see below.

Could Ozzie be gunning for Ricky's job? He sure as hell would be better.

If they lose tonight, Ricky might have maybe another week to turn it around. 

I'd prefer someone like Jirschele to Ozzie though. I thought Hahn was supposed to be trying to transition the org to being more analytics oriented.

He probably thinks they need Mark Teahan instead of Yoan.

I mean wasn't it Ozzie who was known for the "Sunday" lineup that had all kinds of odd things.  Didn't Timo Perez hit cleanup once or twice?

Ricky sucks and his lineups are infuriating but Ozzie hit DeWayne Wise leadoff so fuck him too.

Can't put a whole lot of worth into what Ozzie "Sunday lineup" Guillen has to say about lineups.

Did and will always love the '05 team...but they are pretty much the "Trent Dilfer has a ring" of the MLB. It was a lucky outlier of a season. It would be nearly impossible to replicate the success of that team. 

 

And as someone else said, just say no to both Ricky and Ozzie.

THAT'S WHO IT WAS!!! I kept thinking Teahen.  Ozzie was like the baseball equivalent of Ditka with Flutie.

Ozzie batted Dwayne Wise leadoff multiple games to start a season.  He shouldn’t be talking shit about anyone.

Dude get lost. Winning 99 games and going 11-1 in the playoffs isn’t some fluke season. Differ was a scrub carried by a defense.

Ozzie's worst move was running Mackowiak out to CF most of 2006 imho

So does Joe Borchard.  That doesn't mean I want him back.

Ricky Maybe made some questionable decisions but it is not his fault that neither starter has found the zone in their first turn and that the front office (understandably) keeps madrigal down a week for an extra year so he has to play leury at second.

I would not bat delmonico 4th but really line-up positions are mostly irrelevant, those are fractions of a run decisions.

Ozzie hated rookies, especially "savior" rookies, so he'd definitely be rolling Engel out in CF.

Lol calm damn there sparky. It's not an insult, it doesn't make the season that did happen any less amazing...but yes the 05 team was a fluke, as in highly likely to be repeated. A lot of things came together that year that don't usually happen to a team all in 1 season, especially in the pitching staff. Fluke doesn't have to mean bad, you're taking the Dilfer reference too literal (or it was just a bad reference). That Ravens team was also incredible, regardless who their QB was.

I mean, the pitchers basically all had career years that season. I think I'd call that a fluke.

Ozzie continues to be a hypocrite. 

Maybe he learned from his mistakes? People adapt, folks. Ozzie REALLY wants to manage again. he may be adapting to the times.

The fact he is still making a public spectacle of himself shows otherwise.
