Bob Geren: The Worst Manager in Baseball
It's obvious Bob Geren has no feel for managing a baseball game. He takes extremely risky moves, either by doing something way too soon or by not doing anything.
There's no middle ground for Geren, and usually when he does something or he doesn't do something, the A's get hurt for it.
Like in last night's game against the Texas Rangers where Geren chose to intentionally walk Chris Davis in the bottom of the first to load the bases to pitch to Taylor Teagarden. He ended up hitting a two-run single to give the Rangers a 4-1 lead.
That was not the time to walk Davis. He has been struggling all year. It was the perfect match up for the A's to get out of the inning with only giving up two runs, but Geren took a risk that wasn't worth it and the A's got burned.
