Bochy’s got our best hitter and best player batting sixth? The one significant offensive addition to last year’s last-place club, on a team with no offense whatsoever, and Bruce Bochy has him batting sixth.
UPDATE: Wow. Zito, again, brings nothing to the game, or should I say, brings exactly what he has, which is nothing. More errors, more double plays….. wow.
And, to add insult to injury, Bochy has the audacity to dress down the rookie, Bocock, after he gets picked off in a 5-0 ninth inning. Ummmm…. Boch? Your shortstop there was promoted from Single A to start on Opening Day, because you have no suitable replacement in your entire organization for your injured, 43-year old starting shortstop. So, sure, the kid’s overmatched. It’s not his fault. It’s your general managers fault. Yelling at Bocock isn’t gonna help, it’s gonna hurt. And, more importantly, it’s disgraceful.
You wanna yell at somebody, yell at Sabean, for giving you this shamefully inadequate roster.
