    Why is Tatis starting against Randy Wolf? Does Jerry Manuel not have access to batter vs pitcher career stats?

    Jerry Manuel is clueless. He's too cerebral and over thinks his moves. Not being able to get his team "ready" for away games is one of his biggest failings. They are a pathetic team away from the Citi.

    I think the worst thing is he can't rearrange a lineup when someone sits. He has possibly his coldest hitter batting fourth… fun.

    And as for Castillo's big hit just now… good for him, he's bound to get some. Still don't like him 2nd.
