TLR knows more about man management in his mid 70s than some of our posters do, mercy. Better to stay silent...

I actually like how TLR communicated this so far by saying "I'm sure there is a reason" because it gives both a way out saving their face. 

Now yermin just needs to come up with a good excuse and anyone can move on. Just has to make sure it it doesn't repeat.

It's not Yermin's fault Freddies isn't open until 10:30 on Sundays.

Can't get four hits without two Yerminators!

Why no Eaton vs Plesac?

You haven't noticed the excessive amount of K's the last few games and how he's been stumbling around the bases and the OF ?

Very disappointing. Gets his big break and jeopardizes it. Hopefully a good reason.

You’re a sadly obsessed person.

I’m assuming it’s because they won yesterday and it’s his thread at this point.

Honestly did not know. I joined late last season. Any other “unwritten rules” new posters should be aware of?

 

Ah yeah, innocent mistake and we're an hour out.

I'm fine with Eaton getting a rest, hes struggled mightly and looked gimpy out there. As for lamb vs. mercedes...come on, give him a fine in kangaroo court and move on don't put lamb at DH.

If it had nothing to do with the lineup, then why isn't he playing?

I didn't get that either. Mercedes ain't playing the next few games anyway so let it slide and make him do push-ups or something.

That’s what I was thinking. Why even mention the fact he was late and make him look bad?

If I recall correctly, this isn't the first time Yermin has been late to report this season.

Yermin needs to take accountability, his actions are hurting the team now.

Elite man management, bro!

Leury garcia has played 7 games in the past 7 days. Lol

Meanwhile Vaughn, Yermin, and Madrigal have had 5 games off total.

 

It gets dumber though because Tony was already wanting to play Jake Lamb today anyway because he can't have a game where at least two bench bats play, gotta keep them from getting stale while the starters have the texture of croutons because of how little they've played

Eaton needs a rest.  No problem with this substitution.

Thank you. Mister, we could use a manager like Chuck Tanner again.

Agree.  TLR supposedly plays the bench guys so much to keep them fresh, but is going to have Mercedes have five straight off days outside of pinch hitting.  I actually like that Tony is holding Yermin accountable for his actions, but I would tried punishing him a different way given the broader circumstances.

This is my problem as well. Yermin isn't going to play again until Friday! There was no need to get Lamb in there. This isn't college baseball, and I don't know about you but I don't get sent home from the office if I were late because we're adults and mistakes happen and you still have to do your job. Punishing the team and decreasing the likeliness of winning to "send a message" to a 28 year old man is amateurish at best.

Tbh, Yermin should start over Jose at least once during that series at 1B. Hopefully he's been working on his defense there. Jose has been bad and still hasn't gotten a day off. We need Yermin's bat.

I’m actually not opposed to it assuming Yermin won’t kill us there.

But we don't know all the circumstances.  Maybe he has been late before and TLR let it slide.  Maybe Yermin's dog ate his alarm clock .

I'm sure the TLR apologists will find a good reason for sitting the best offensive player in the league for Lamb

As opposed to the TLR haters who will always find a way to complain.

He was limping after the attempted catch against the net yesterday. Probably sore today.

Because the manager doesn't want to make Mercedes to look too bad. Just a little bit.
