As for Mota---what would you have done? Cabrera, Miller, and Bentacourt all went to the DL at the same time
and you are celebrating when a player like Bentacourt is available again...you know you are low on options.
Sauerbeck (who is gone now)?
when you spend weeks with Mota, Sauerbeck, Graves

I disagree...I think you can certainly over-manage in these situations. I think that is especially the case when you have players struggling and trying to fit into roles. I think that quick hook and lack of faith leads to players tightening up
As for who he broke camp with---do you seriously think we would go into the season with 4-5 rookie relievers? This is supposed to be a contender, right?

These guys are getting paid to fit into whatever roles they are assigned

I will agree that his handling of a pitching staff is questionable
but a real skipper needs to have an ability to know when to let a guy work out of a funk, when to yell at him, when to give up on him...maybe Wedge isn't as strong at that as some other guys.

Wedge might not be pushing the buttons in the best combination, I don't think a mangerial change makes this team better.

Twice in the last 100 years of baseball, a managerial change in season lead to a big change in performance and team moving to the playoffs.
