It's a home run or 2 for this team or go home.
“Here's the pitch by Downing. Swinging. There's a drive into left-center field. That ball is going to be out of here! IT'S GONE! IT'S 715! There's a new home run champion of all-time! And it's Henry Aaron!"
If this road trip is the beginning of a bad September than AA will have to make the touch choice to rightfully fire Snitker and the whole coaching staff must go too
New approach and philosophy needed. Better game management and approach to plate discipline.
It won't be popular with the players but its time the way this has gone this yr - even some in the media love Snitker. Too bad, we need to be better and changes need to be made
I’d love to move in another direction but no way it happens. Snitker is loved by the organization and he’ll get a pass for all the stuff that happened to us this year.
From a technical and roster management perspective I think this has been Snitker's worst managerial job in his time here.
And as you know I have not really been a harsh Snitker critic in the past. There have been good things that has happened in the Snitker era - from guidance in the middle of the rebuild up to being one game from the WS last yr. He was the right personality at the time - and his leadership was good in the development of our core young guys like Ozzie, Acuna and Riley. We have seen development of some of our young SP's. Fried, Anderson and hopefully some day a healthy Soroka. Even Ynoa and Touki are starting to show something at times. His patience has been an asset to a point.
But the way the pen has been messed up this yr, not seeing what Will Smith really is and the dreadful inconsistency of the offense, that is where I see a change needed.
New voice - maybe a disciplinarian (if there are any left) that can combine some anayltics in a reasonable way. Better roster management - new PC.
But --- I do question if the tough decision will be made.
UGA football had to make the tough decision to move on from Mark Richt to Kirby Smart and for the most part it was the right one. I see a similar situation here. Different sport but similar issues.
