Tony Gwynn as DH? That is the last straw. Fire Ned Yost. That move makes no sense. I have been a supporter of Yost for a while. Why? I don't know. When you continually trot out the same starting eight and NEVER bench anyone, you give me little hope. I've been to four games this year (decent), but the product on the field makes me want to take up a new summer hobby. We have been patient for 26 years. Time for Milwaukee to demand a winner.
Tony Gwynn as DH? That is laughable. Batting ninth, your DH. If that is the best you can do, we are in big trouble.
FIRE HIS A**

I love it. Ned Yost puts a lineup on the field that scores 7 runs against the AL Cy Young runner-up and all you can do is complain that Tony Gwynn was the DH? Did you ever think that maybe he was trying to work a second left handed bat into the lineup?
if you can't get caught up in the drama in the race for a pennant, then what kind of fan are you? well, i'll tell you. one who doesn't care enough. one who doesn't care if the team wins or loses, just as long as they can watch baseball and drink beer in a parking lot on a sunny day, golly gee! and that's fine for some people. seriously. but don't pretend you know what you're talking about as far as team strategy then, ok?
Amelia, I am not hitting the panic button nor am I bailing on this season. We clearly are still in the hunt for the division, and for the wild card. I even think that if the hitting wasn't so terrible this year the problems would be ignored. However, I thought Ned Yost should have been fired at the end of last year. Listening to all the experts, and watching games myself, it was clear Ned Yost made some glaring mistakes including: mis-managing the bullpen, poor coaching evident through base-running mistakes, and the fact that the team collapsed down the stretch that saw Yost ejected twice. As far as replacements, I would say there are two that would be great:
1. Pat Listach (Former brewers ROY, and current manager of the Cubs AAA affiliate Iowa Cubs)
2. Bob Brenly (Current Cubs Broadcaster, and former World Series Winning Manager for the Arizona D-Backs in 2001)
Listach, although always working within the Cubs organization has milwaukee ties. I am not sure if he would be able to leave his current club mid-season.
Brenly, on the other hand, im sure could be coaxed out of the booth to be the manager. I think they would be better than ted simmons who has no Managerial experience.
aimela, do you think before you post? why should somebody have to be a better coach to criticize coaching? do you have to be a better chef to criticize the cooking at a restaurant?
and ted simmons or frank kremblas. there's two suggestions. if a manager or coach can't help a player out of their slump then they really should be replaced as it's part of their job. or how about benching slumping players, or at the very least letting them work it out at the bottom of the lineup?
