Baggs: Bochy Evaluating Himself

By Melissa Felkins

Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area posted an interview today with San Francisco Giants’ manager, Bruce Bochy. Bochy opened up and admitted to making mistakes and having to evaluating his own managing as he looks on this disappointing season for the reigning World Champs. Some of Bochy’s most notable mishaps this season including screwing up a lineup card which led to the Giants batting out of order, as well as a failed double-switch that took Buster Posey‘s bat out of the lineup at a crucial point in the game.

Some can handle constructive criticism or maybe a snap in the dugout. Other times, that might not help things during some tough times.”"
