If Roberts were as much of a thinker & numbers man as he purports himself to be, he could flip Kimbrel with Phillips and thereby let Kimbrel work out his issues (or not). Helen Keller - in her current state - can see how shaky and uncertain and inexact Kimbrel's pitch location is when he comes in. The fact that Roberts continues to apply some subjective, gut feeling to decisions like this when he must know how fatal those decisions will be in october.. well that's the reason that most of us here hate the guy. .... ....it is safe to say that any current or former manager in the last decade of baseball could have gotten as many wins out of this roster in the last eight years as Roberts has gotten. Yet here we are, with a powerhouse team capable of 110 wins per year, a stroll through the playoffs, and a World Series championship to cap it, but with only one world title to show for it. Grady FECKIN Little would have beaten the Nats & Braves in 19 & 21. Roberts mismanagement is easily to blame, as much as poor execution, in those instances. It's just so damned frustrating.
