Ozzie will probably never get credit for the intangibles he brings to this team, unseen on a daily basis by the fans. Sometimes its better to be lucky than good with late inning managerial decisions. Hey- we won...it's hard to complain about a win.

Ozzie is going to be discussed tonight on Outside the Lines. His managerial style and the effect he has on the team.

There was a guy on yesterday's postgame show who said that the sole, solitary act of Ozzie taking out McCarthy when he was facing the Cubs was singlehandedly going to destroy the team for the remainder of the season.

Melton and Dolgin were like, "OK, I guess we should just turn off the lights and power this thing down, since there's no reason to play anymore, right?"

Pretty funny.

Unbelievable what kind of dopes get through to make complete *******s of themselves on a 50,000 watt radio station.

Jeff Brantly (big surprise...) reamed Ozzie out during that inning. Among the comments they replayed:

*"Pennants are won at the end of games gentlemen...'
*"Buehrle's leaving and he shouldn't even have been in this position in the first place...'
*"Right now the Sox should be high fiving Dustin Hermansen after another one,two, three inning...'

and lastly....

*"They may have the best record in baseball but that was awful managing.."

Oddly enough when Perez got the game winning hit Brantly was strangely silent..... go figure! Seriously what did the Sox do to get the burr under his ass?

I'm not sure the dopes at ESPN realize how much faith Ozzie has in Buerhle. I actually liked the decision to let Mark start the ninth. He is the best pitcher we have. I am always confident when he is on the mound.

What I did not like was Ozzie's decision to bring in Marte. If you're going to take Buehrle out, you go with Hermanson, IMO.

Oh, well. We still won. Next.

Ozzie deserves to have a bonehead day every once in a while. You don't get to the best record in the league, 34-17, by just dumb luck...and this team certainly doesn't have the 'talent' of other teams like the Yankmees.

He's obviously doing something right, and I for one am glad he got that extension today.

The only reason anyone is second guessing Ozzie is because of Iguchi's error in the 9th. If he doesn't make that error they probably would have turned 2 and Marte would have had the save. Marte did his job, it was the error that almost cost us.

Just saw the highlights on the midnight edition of Sportscenter. They chronicled the entire top of the 9th, and let Brantley's comments out there. Yet then they quickly show the clip of Timo driving home the game winner.

I love to read a good post after reading 3 threads full of ignorant B.S. from even the more informed posters. Players win games and managers loose them, the Oz knows that; I am just glad others do as well...

Funny how the tide turns when things go south for a few games. The SOX are about to start winning again and you won't here a negative word unless it's about PK. The only reason you will hear PK bashing is because of his cancerous comments in the paper. And we all know that no one else has ever called out a teammate on the SOX before... I don't recall so many posters talking about his ability to GIDP before the last game of the Flubs series.

David Wells did it and guys still liked him. The Oz did it when he was playing and now he is the manager. I am sure there are more.

The only thing I think is funny is that everyone is calling for his job after he said those things. If anything, they should have been calling for his job when he got off to his typical terrible start. PK makes way to much money for what he is doing and I wished KW would have been able to send him away instead of Lee so I am hardly an Apoulogist, thank you.

Not bringing in Hermanson in the ninth was questionable. I would not say it was the worst decision ever. Because there are far worse decisions (looks at dusty baker's overuse of cubs starters).

But with that being said, dumb luck is sometimes VERY VERY SWEET.

As Ozzie says...it is better to be lucky then to be good. Today we were definately lucky.

I was at the game, it was a blast. The 38,000+ fans was really nice to see. Though I got burned pretty bad.

I think there is alot of Ozzie haters out there. Sometimes he makes mistakes, but to be honest every manager makes a similiar mistakes.

To be honest, the mark of a good team, good manager, and good players, is the ability to cover up the mistakes with a win.

I don't have much of a sample size of Melton's opinions, but I do remember him criticizing the Sox at the end of 2003, when the Sox blew a September series in Minnesota, virtually ending the season. Melton ripped the team, but did so in a professional, accurate manner. Listening to him list the season-long problems with the team comforted me after such a devastating end to the season.

IowaSox1971
05-31-2005, 03:21 AM
One of the reasons Hermanson has been so effective this season is that Ozzie tries to use him in favorable matchups. Facing a guy like Erstad would not have been a good matchup for Hermanson. An intelligent commentator would have pointed this out right away. Also, while posting a save against the Angels last week, Hermanson gave up two very long fly balls that appeared to be home runs when they were hit but ended up being caught near the wall. And those long fly balls were hit by two of the Angels' weaker hitters. There is no guarantee that Hermanson would have pitched a 1-2-3 ninth.

Ozzie managed the bullpen just fine in the ninth inning. Marte got that guy to hit an easy double play ball that should have ended the game, but Iguchi just made a bad play. That's Iguchi's fault, not Ozzie's.

Terrible manager???? Well Let's see it's his 2nd year as a manager, he finished his first year with a winning record despite losing 2 big pieces of the Offense, and having a 5th spot in the rotation that couldn't do squat. Has he made some bad decisions?? Yes, has he cost us some games??? Yes, what manager hasn't??????????? Bottom line is Ozzie has a job to do.....that job is to make decisions and trust that the players he puts into certain situations do thier job. If the players fail to do thier job Ozzie is a bad Manager, If the player does his job, THE PLAYER made a great play, or came up with a big hit, or got a big strikeout. How many games does this team have to win before you stop being jealous of the fact that Manuel couldn't get the same performance out of these guys???? It's ludicrous the way we sit around here and bicker about things when there are so many other things involved in a game that we do not see. Two things that make this bickering completely useless, 1. Hindsight is always 20/20, if buerhle had gotten three outs this wouldn't even be an issue 2. These players play for Guillen because of who he is, not because of managerial experience, or championships won. He lights a fire under these guys when it's crunch time and gives them the proper support when things are going bad. Manuel lacked that. We could post here all day about Ozzie should've done this and that and the other, but you put yourself on that bench in the same situations and tell me you'd do anything different. Of course you'd say you would, hindsight and all, but being there is something completely different. Can we just enjoy being in first place with the best record in baseball and save the BS for when and if we really have problems?????

After Ozzie was done, this is what Mark Buehrle said to the writers: "I was kind of surprised I went out there for the ninth inning," Buehrle said. "I faced these guys nine innings the last game (Tuesday) and eight innings (Monday). Most of these guys have seen me nine or 10 times."

I don't think this is back stabbing. He didn't say that Ozzie made a poor decision by putting him out there, he was just surprised that he did. There are a few ways this could be interpreted (one of which could be positive), unlike what PK said to the media about Uribe's play.

The manager is NOT a teammate. He is the manager, paid specifically to make decisions effecting other people. Somebody has to make these decisions, and Ozzie is the one paid to do it.

In other words, he is 100 percent different than Paul Konerko second-guessing teammate Juan Uribe.

I'm guessing you don't work in management do you? Believe me, it's no different at work. Once somebody is promoted to a management job things are never quite the same with the ol' crew.

Except in this case, the braves are often getting more wampum than Geronimo.

Sort of an exception to the rule,

Braves with OPS over 1000 (or ERA's under 3) are harder to replace than chiefs. Supply, demand...

:wink:

That's funny,because Brian Dolgin has been doing the same thing all season.:wink: Just kidding!! Speaking of Brian,I think he has really found a groove and is doing a great job.
And Speaking of Bryan, my sons and I went to a Joliet Jackhammers game last week. Had a great time, the 'Hammers won, life is good. But one of the Monty Python-esque highlights of the night was that the Jackhammers were giving away Bryan Dolgin bobblehead dolls. They really were.

The dolls are good quality too. Now if in later years Bryan D. goes on to become a Hall of Fame Broadcaster, my sons and I will have the extremely rare and valuable Dolgin bobbleheads. :tongue:
