Exactly. It wasn't "Day of our Southsiders" with Robin at the helm. It was about baseball, and IF there was any 'drama' per se, it was watching Robin go through some growing pains as a manager.

Personally, it makes me pretty happy to hear Robin and company will be back.

Our hitters didn't choke down the stretch? Really?! Come on. They had major troubles with runners in scoring position.

That was a major recurring issue for the past few seasons, though. Can't really put that on Robin as the manager as much as I do on the players.
