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.
"I have the ultimate respect for White Sox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Red Sox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country." Jim Caple, ESPN (January 12, 2011)

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
