This thread is inspired by all the mind-boggling things Buck does or doesn't do. So I decided to start a list that we can all add to as things come up


here are a couple of rules that come to mind right out of the box


1) The closer pitches the 9th inning. NO EXCEPTIONS!!

2) The Righty-Lefty match up rule is not to be tampered with, no matter how over-matched your guy may be in the situation.

3) Ryan Flaherty stays on my team. You got that!!!

4) Let my weakest hitter on the team bat in a crucial late game situation. Who needs my bench players??

5) Always say nice things about the team that just beat you, like "that's a damn fine team", to get yourself off the hook of having to explain yourself. When in doubt, just say, "it is what it is'. Works for everyone else.

I don't have an 'ignore' list. I don't need no stinkin' list to remind me who I've ignored! I ignore the old-fashioned way.
