Fire Ricky

You could argue he made the wrong call to the bullpen in all 4 games this series. And absolutely egregious ones in games 2 and 4 that 100% cost us the game.

Was it rickey or joe that brought in ruiz game 2?  Either way, it was a dumb call

I was actually going to make a thread in any case when the year ended assuming no championship. Who's everyone's replacement?

I'll go with Alomar

Alomar has made very bad decisions according to Indians twitter last few weeks

I am so angry I want to throw thousands on a credit card tonight for season tickets just behind the 3rd base dugout just to loudly boo Renteria at every home game next season when he’s announced. This is why I shouldn’t have internet access lol

I doubt if Alomar pitches Rodon in the 7th.

Seems like a nice guy. Players seem to like him.  Terrible in game manager.  Maybe they'll hire offensive and defensive coordinators to handle the strategy.

Maybe we wanted to see if Rodon was gonna be “the guy, the secret weapon” etc for the playoffs.  
 

if he dominated there that would have been huge.  Now we know not to high-leverage him in the playoffs.  
 

no big deal to me.  Now we know

Agree. Overall it was a job well done. These are the type of make-or-break, big-boy pants type series.......and he failed time and time again. 

He was trying to teach them what they’ll need to win in the postseason by reminding him them they’ll be at a managerial disadvantage

Does anyone here really believe Colome was having back spasms that other game?  Our bench coach, and Cooper, are just as bad.

Only way Rodon will dominate is if he throws mostly sliders. Instead he once again proved he has no fastball command and couldn’t use his best pitch.

Obviously this was a tough loss. Still, the team isn't hitting. They only had 4 hits tonight.

Getting your teams confidence destroyed right before the playoffs seems like not the best move.

I think we need to bring someone in who has experience and a history of getting teams to the next level. Ricky never had anywhere close to a winning season before this one.

He’s a terrible in game manager. But your all kidding yourself, he will be back next year. This front office lacks the balls to do it. Prepare for this debauchery for 162 (hopefully) games next year!

The Ruiz debacle led to all of this

So many decisions this series that pissed me off when it came to the pen.  While everyone is focusing on Rodon/Bummer tonight(as well we should be), I don’t get why Cordero was starting that inning instead of Foster.  Cordero got blooped to death but Codi(who probably wasn’t available tonight) and Foster have to be your 7th and 8th inning guys from the right side.

He should have been fired a long time ago.  He doesn't know how to win.  

Yep and so freaking sick of hearing “he’s a nice guy”.  Who cares, Ventura and Manuel are two of the nicest guys ever and they couldn’t win shit.

I kept saying it in the thread, but Cordero is a massive liability against lefties.  Heuer wasn’t available tonight I’m sure

It isn’t just this series guys, Ricky has done this all season long. Using relievers that shouldn’t be used in high leverage situations and then wasting others in games they shouldn’t be in during a blowout. I’m amazed how anyone can back his decision making. This series has just magnified it all. Imagine what decisions he will make come the 2 games we play in the playoffs. He’s not manager material and if the only reason he’s still employed is because he can speak Spanish then that is simply unacceptable because there are many around the sport who is able to do that.

I bet it's because we had a 3 run lead.

It’s the same Owner who kept Jim Boylen around for so long. Unfortunately Ricky won’t go anywhere for the next 2-3 years at a minimum.

"Can" really sticks out to me. You can put it all on me? Who else would we put it on? Dude was coming back from injury, wasn't lighting the world on fire before the injury...and hasn't come out of the bullpen since 2015. CAN?????

Pretty empty statement.  Tells me he still believes it was the right move.

So half (or more) of the competitive window we’ve waited on for a decade will be spent watching this trash bag mismanage the bullpen and cost the team wins? Awesome.
