I have no problem with him getting another shot!

Maybe we need a VETERAN manager who can win?

What in the world do they see in him at this point?! I would like to see Irwin and his curveball get another chance before Morton and Liriano return.

Its getting exceptionally hard to defend Barmes at SS, his defense may be worth 10 runs, but his bat is so terrible that it doesn’t matter. Jordy should have made the team to begin with and now is the time to let him play. Give him 2 months then you know if a trade is needed in July.

Marte still has a lot to learn and he will make rookie mistakes, mistakes IMO that Hurdle does not live with very easily. I draw that conclusion from the fact that often when Marte does something that does not work out, Hurdle singles him out, he never singles out a guy like McCutchen or a guy like A.J.
I like Erwin and Oliver, but IMO, it is highly unlikely that either would get much more than one chance when they come up.
It seems like they have certain players that they are going to live and die with no matter what and other players that are one and done.
