Last week’s poll question was: At this point in the season, which area would you focus on to “fix” the team, if you were the manager?
Here are the results:
Starting pitching: 38%
Batting order: 3%
Hitting in big situations: 56%
So, the majority of you chose hitting in big situations, but I think you might change your mind after seeing the last outings of both Livan Hernandez and Oliver Perez. It’s clearly the most looming issue right now, especially when the starting pitchers are putting the team five, six or seven runs in the hole and can’t get out of the fifth inning.
So, this week’s question is: If Oliver Perez or Livan Hernandez were sent down, which pitcher would you bring up to replace them?
