0-1??? Fire him!!! He cant coach.

Yeah, I agree, FIRE HIM!!! Then hire him for the big league club! And demote Castro too!!! He can’t hit, drive in runs or steal bases….”demote” him to the major league club. What fools to think the major league club is better with Theriot at SS and either Fontenot or Baker at 2b while this kid Castro is burning time in the minors, and not even gaining any wisdom by playing for the HOF Sandberg…AA for *&#$sake! Fools.
