The days when Eddie Stanky could fine them or bench them unfortunately are long gone.

If that's true then we have a bunch of losers that all they care about is HRs and not doing the little things to win games, but we know that, its been that way for years.

The manager still fills out the lineup card. You put on a bunt sign; if the player ignores it, he sits. They'll get the message. If managers can no longer sit a player down, then we clearly don't need managers at all.

True, but sad to say it looks like Robin is taking the "Gandhi" approach, and we all know how that turned out when Manuel was our manager.
