Guy was great from April to August. He went into a funk with everyone else.
What happened in September of last year was that Robin's complete lack of experience coaching at any level of professional baseball started to show. I think he panicked a bit and started to over think things. I am not saying that the collapse was totally Robin's fault, but his inexperience contributed.
Robin has mad some questionable decisions but then again the bigger problem seems to be that the roster pretty much sucks.
