Default Renteria doesn't care what you think about his lineups

I know these have been a common complaint, but Ricky really hasn't said anything about them until now.

Even though I donít like his lineups, Iíd lose some respect for RR if he did care what us fans thought.

Yeah, it's not like we didn't have threads about how Ozzie's awful lineups and how he didn't care what we thought. Probably had threads about Ventura and Manuel, too.

I may have issues with RR's lineups at times but I agree with him. It is his job to set the lineups. Input from the fans is not his concern and not important. The only input that counts is from his boss(es).

I'll take a guys input from a lifetime in baseball over fans' complaints. Let him make the lineups and if Hahn decides he's not doing well, let Hahn influence or remove him
