|I don't know, but is there a way we can fire Trey Hillman again? Gil Meche just announced his retirement, an event that came about with more than a little help from Hillman falling asleep at the wheel in Kansas City and effectively destroying what remained of Meche's shoulder. (Marc Normandin)|
|2010-05-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)||We're approaching 40 games into the season, and the shock of the O's dismal start is starting to fade, and now I can't help but feel bitter. Wasn't this the year they were supposed to make it to .500, beginning an upward trend for at least a few years? Can you help me make sense of it all?|
(tmcghan from Bay Area, CA)
|Well, losing Brian Roberts for a couple of months is a major blow, but you're right, there's some disconcerting stuff going on there, such as Adam Jones' chilly start, the odd shipment of Nolan Reimold to Triple-A, and the inexplicable continuing presence of Garret Atkins. Still, Matt Wieters is making progress, as is Brian Matusz, and Chris Tillman appears to be coming around at Triple-A. Just remember that a turnaround for an organization with such a back history of losing takes time, and probably a change at the helm -- I'd have bet that Dave Trembley would get the axe before Trey Hillman, and I doubt he'll be around for much longer.

|2010-05-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)||It's killing us Mets fans watching Jerry make horrible strategic decisions every day (re: bullpen usage, lineups, bunting, etc.) and directly losing games as a result. Can you think of a manager ever having been fired for incompetence in in-game managing, as opposed to general incompetence (i.e. team is losing too much)? |

|Ned Yost's summary execution in September 2008 -- over the mess he made out of the improper usage of LOOGY Brian Shouse -- comes to mind, as does the mess Trey Hillman made out of Gil Meche's start over the weekend. I linked both of those in today's Hit List bit on the Royals. Sleep tight, Dayton Moore. (Jay Jaffe)|
|2010-04-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)||So frustrated with the Royals--more than ever. The bullpen has blown 7 saves already and the team has one of the best closers in baseball. What, if anything, can be done to fix the middle relief?|
(bking from Kansas City)
|Middle relief may well be a problem in KC, but I think Trey Hillman and company have bigger wories than that. Heck, Bostons middle relief has been shaky and they theoretically came into the season with that being a strength. And pity poor Dave Trembley. Every time he goes to the bullpen it's a nightmare waiting to happen. I don't know if Trembley smokes or drinks, but if he doesn't, he'll likely start soon. (David Laurila)|
