The right stuff

Manuel has been nominated for Major League Baseball's inaugural Manager's Move of the Week Award.

He earned the nod for his decision to pinch-hit for Miguel Olivo on Saturday against Detroit. After Brian Daubach was announced as the pinch-hitter and Tigers manager Alan Trammell countered by bringing in Jamie Walker, Manuel replaced Daubach with Graffanino, who hit a three-run homer in the Sox's 6-2 victory.

Pittsburgh's Lloyd McClendon and Atlanta's Bobby Cox are also candidates for the award. Fans can vote at MLB.com until Wednesday, and the winning manager will have a $1,000 donation made in his name to a local prostate cancer awareness organization.


Now if that isn't ironic, I don't know what is. :)

So they're rewarding him for his tinkering? That's just great.

I saw that this morning. The first thing I thought of was how ironic that is.

Well, when you make 875,234 moves a week, ONE of them is bound to work eventually.

That move was neither 'tinkering' nor a genius move. It was a solid move that most managers would have done in the same spot.

Well, in that case, prostate cancer should be cured by November.

Between Daubach & TonyG & Rowand, I love our bench. Tinker away if it means getting them more ABs.
