Case IN point against Ron Washington for Manager of the Year


It seems every game of late we have seen people complaining about the job Ron is doing, and tonight, I'd just like to point two things out that should show why he does not deserve the Manager of the Year award.

Bottom 5th, 2-2 ball game. Two on in scoring position, one out, Jose Bautista up to the plate. Scott Feldman stays in the game, gives up a 2 RBI double. 

 

Feldman intentionally walks Vernon Wells.

Michael Kirkman comes in and pitches pretty darn well.

 

So what's the problem?

 

Two innings later, Wash goes to Darren O'Day. If he thought he may have gone to O'Day, why not have him ready and go to him when Bautista is up to bat?

 

Second point. Top 7, two on no one out, down 5-2, Matt Treanor would be batting. But, lo and behold, Christian Guzman gets up and pinch hits for Treanor, presumably to avoid the DP. Guzman proceeds to hit into a DP, runner moves to third.

 

If anyone still thinks Wash can get Manager of the Year, please give me a good reason as to why. I really have no clue why anyone would think that at this point, but I could be very very wrong.
