Maybe it's just me, but that seems like a reasonable lineup adjustment to me. And I'm the guy who started the "Gardy rant" thread.
Pure Gardy.....drops Clete Thomas in lineup as he doesnt hit lefties well, but bats Ryan Doumit 3rd tho he doesnt hit lefthanders well either but keeps the teams best hitter vs lefties (TPlouffe) down in the lineup.

Doesnt Ventura know that you need a scrappy nontalented .220 hitter with .290 OBP in the leadoff spot with someone who can bunt in the 2nd spot.....its in the managerial book everyone gets!!!
Oops... Gardy clearly didn't consruct the White Sox lineup good. Power doesn't belong in the lead off spot... Sheesh.

Gardy should have told Kevin to throw a different pitch there.
I would called for the Elevator Pitch. Its a better introduction of your product. Correia needed a better introduction.

I really dislike Gardy but their isnt much you can do with this collection of everyday players......so please replace all my Gardy rips with Terry Ryan!!!!
Its OK... Gardy likes you... It's enough love for both of you.

My wife says... Get a nice glass of water...
Its her answer for everything... She's like the constant water peddler for the past year or so... She could do it for a living...
I could be taking a shower or swimming in a lake and she'd tell me to have a glass of water.

Whether its Twins TV or radio, they always say the move to hold up the runner was the right move (almost always isnt IMO).
There has to be medium between Ullger waving in runners when the SS has the ball and Vavra holding them when the ball is at the wall and the runner is just getting to third.
Wish there was some kind of sabermetric site that tracked 3rd base coaches when there is a decision to make.
