Riddle Me This- Playing Time for Freddy Galvis

Ryne Sandberg has gone on record as to wanting to keep his bench bats fresh.  Not sure why when the bench consists of perennial duds like Jayson Nix, Freddy Galvis, and John Mayberry. But hey, I'm not a MLB manager.  The one that baffles me the most is Galvis, who is batting a robust .056 (1-18).  Through parts of 3 seasons he's a career .223/.624 hitter with atrocious...

Lee dazzles, Ruiz rewards Sandberg in Phils' win

Ryne Sandberg has displayed a little managerial wizardry, a little Ryno Magic, the last couple of days. On Sunday, he used John Mayberry Jr. as a late-game defensive replacement for hard-handed first baseman Ryan Howard. The move proved auspicious when Mayberry dug a ball out of the dirt to preserve a one-run victory in Denver. Monday night, Sandberg mixed up a lineup potion that...

Sizing up Sandberg: Not much worked this week

Everything about this week was a failure for the Philadelphia Phillies. While the players deserve a chunk of blame for underperforming, just about everything decision Ryne Sandberg made was wrong. Starting on Sunday, with A.J. Burnett struggling, it was a chance to take advantage of the eight-man bullpen. Remember, Sandberg...

With Ryne Sandberg, "Everybody hits! Wha Whoo!

Watching Ryne Sandberg in the first week of the Phillies season is kinda like getting a brand new wife. You can date a woman for a couple years and get to know her fairly well, but once you get married and she has you locked in, it is a totally different ball game (pun intended). Similarly with Ryne Sandberg, he managed 42 games last season as interim manager, but that was not the...

Sizing Up Sandberg: Ryno has everyone's attention

Ryne Sandberg certainly has everyone’s attention. In four short games, he’s had Ryan Howard out of the cleanup spot as often as in it, had his closer question a decision of his and executed two great-pinch hitting calls. Oh, and four lineups in four games has everyone needing to double-check...
