View Full Version : Why Jerry Why?

After sweeping the Twins and enjoying a great second half of June for both the Sox and Big Frank (while playing first for long stretches), Jerry decides to play Frank at first for only 2 of the final 10 games, wherein the White Sox and Frank cool off (something like 5 hits in last 30 abs for Frank).

Why does he mess with what is working? It is soooooooo frustrating!

Manuel has some sort of obsession with tinkering. No matter how well something is working, he can't resist the urge to make a few adjustments, even if these adjustments end up hurting the team. It's because of things like this that so many people on this board want Manuel to be fired. The White Sox can't afford to let him live out his lineup card fantasies every day, because it's killing their chances of winning the division.
