John, in case you didn’t know, we are down 1-0 against the Astros. You are facing left-handed pitcher, Dallas Keuchel today and you are benching a player that has a 1.074 OPS against lefties. What are you doing? Are you trying to get yourself fired before the series is even over? You have to be smarter than that.
This team can’t just roll over and quit. I mean, we still have a chance. I truly believe if the team plays with a little passion, we could make this a series. Farrell certainly doesn’t help our chances when he benches one of our better hitters against lefties.
Farrell is already in some hot water with the Nunez situation. He should have never been on the ALDS roster. He was hurt. Now, Nunez could be hurt for a longer period of time. Not a good look at all for Farrell.
Farrell has to be smart. I have no idea what he has in his head right now. This isn’t what we need right now. We need guys to hit. When Devers is in the lineup, we have a better chance of hitting the ball. Wake up, John Farrell.
