    Lou Piniella's use of Tyler Colvin

    Wednesday Steve Stone called out Lou Piniella's use of Tyler Colvin (Report: Steve Stone criticizes Lou Piniella for use of Tyler Colvin - ESPN Chicago) Honestly, I have to agree. He just got his second PH is as many days, this time against the lefty Lou must have thought he couldn't hit to begin with. Nady stinks and probably every other outfielder on the roster would have caught both of Konerko's hits that knocked in the two runs.

    I think Lou needs to wake up and start really playing the guys that are producing not just saying that is what his is going to do.

    Colvin - .298
    Fukudome - .278
    Nady - .250

    Re: Lou Piniella's use of Tyler Colvin

    if I was managing, id probably have sat colvin out today as well. a lefty batting against another lefty he has never faced before? nady probably had some good career numbers against buehrle, but then again you need to play who is hot. nady was terrible in the outfield today I agree. it could go either way

    Coming into today, Nady was 1-8 with a home run in his career against Buehrle. One walk and one strikeout.

    He has really hurt us in the field today. However, like Harry used to say - "I'm not a smart man but I do know you can't ever win if you don't score."

    Nady should have had that catch in the 7th. I have no idea how he couldn't get to the ball. He must not have seen it come off the bat or something. It looked very catchable and cost them a run.

    However, he wouldn't have been in that position if Castro had planted the tag on Slappy like he should have. Bad teams find ways to lose games.

    Why do our middle infielders continue to receive the throw way in front of 2nd and then lunge at the runner? Bob Brenly has been going nuts over it for the last year and a half and nothing changes. Theriot does the same thing. What's going on with that?
