Bob Melvin is CLEARLY not the answer.
They have yet to win a GAME under his leadership.
What are you waiting for, A’s?
Get rid of this guy!
(You see, it had nothing to do with Bob Geren. I just want the A’s to have a new manager for every game.)
I’ve been calling for Bob Geren to be axed for more than 2 seasons.
It’s amazing that he has lasted longer than a Presidential term, taking a team that was a regular playoff participant and seeing them turn into a sub .500 non entity.
It’s not ALL his fault but it clearly wasn’t working.
Bob Melvin is the new manager. During Geren’s first season (2007), Melvin took an unlikely and seemingly overmatched Diamondbacks team and led them to a 90 win season and homefield advantage in the NLCS.
They got to within 4 games of the World Series with Eric Byrnes as their top offensive threat and Livan Hernandez as their #3 starter.
In that time the D’Backs have been dismantled and rebuilt with 2 other managers.
And Geren stayed put in Oakland… until now.
The A’s could use a little overachieving.
Or who knows?
Maybe Geren should have gotten ANOTHER 4 1/3 seasons!
They keep losing and losing and losing and here we are 1/3 of the way through his FIFTH year as manager and there is no life on this team.
The A’s were tied for first on May 17th.
They are 5-14, including losing their last 7 games.
THE GEREN AS MANAGER THING IS NOT WORKING!
