In case you didn’t notice

August 17, 2011

As I was listening to the pregame show on radio last night Lance McAllister of WLW was ranting about the mis-use of Yonder Alonso.  Alonso was in the line-up, in left field, something Dusty The Magnificent said wouldn’t happen “any time soon.”

McAllister’s basic point was that Alonso’s situation is symptomatic of greater issues within the organization.  I couldn’t agree more.  Presuming that the reason Alonso wasn’t playing (after only three big-league starts in left) was because of DTM, then someone needs to take DTM out back and let him know who’s the boss or just simply fire him.  If DTM is just following orders, then he needs to do a better job of standing up for his guys.

DTM’s explanation for Alonso playing was that “we’re pretty beat up” and “we’ve got to see if that (the three previous games started) was a fluke”.

Really?  It took you EIGHT DAYS to come to that conclusion!?!?

That must be the thinking management and ownership are taking on DTM right now with his job.  They want to see if last season was a fluke or if DTM really is that bad of a manager.
