Ive been watching him the last week or so, is this a hot streak or a breakout year? Thinking about dropping Viciedo for him.

Maybe? I suck at fantasy baseball but just from looking at their stats seems like both should have similar numbers, maybe once Goldschmidt stops batting .200 at Chase Field he will explode some more

4.8 for Correa is so awesome. Not only is he my favorite out of the top options, but he's also cheap. Now we can throw a **** ton of cash at McCullers. :D

Pirates take that series to get two games back and now have a home series with our 3 best pitching options coming up. Got me feeling pretty good.

For the third time in recent memory, he brought in a rookie for his first ever appearance in a crucial point in the game. He is 0-3. Please get rid of him, NOW.

I'm with you on the absurdity of using relievers for their MLB debut in the tightest of spots. He's done it with Ortega, Putkonen, Sborz, Ruffin and Marte over the last few years (others too, I'm sure).

You shut the **** up. Sorry to inform you, and this may come as a shock to you, but you aren't the end all be all for baseball knowledge, so back the **** off prick. And Leyland obviously is the problem. Tell me another manager who would continually make the same mistake over and over. Why the **** would you bring in a rookie pitcher AGAIN in that situation. It completely ruins the young pitchers psyche. Not to mention the 18 million different lineups used every week. Also, you dont see me attacking you when you have something stupid to say all the damn time.

It completely ruins the young pitchers psyche. Not to mention the 18 million different lineups used every week. Also, you dont see me attacking you when you have something stupid to say all the damn time.
Because he NEEDS to change the lineup, and it worked pretty damn well when he did it with Dirks and Boesch earlier in the year (not his fault Boesch is bottoming out). As for the rookie thing, that's just what he's always done and if it works, then he can trust the guy. I get what he's doing, and I don't have a problem with it. It's not exactly his fault that our system is an abomination, which leaves us with zero depth. Laying the blame on the manager is an easy way out, when at the end of the day, they're really inconsequential for a baseball team's success unless they're actively horrible (see: Dusty Baker).

And you checked off all the guys there he put in big situations immediately, you know the common factor in the ones that failed? They failed. Not saying it will always happen, but the ones that can pull it off (Zumaya in 2006, Al Al last year, Marte last year) will stick. Firing Leyland solves nothing, it helps nothing, and it's just a facade to cover up struggles in other parts of the organization. I don't like his lineup construction all of the time, nor do I like some of his bullpen moves, but he's hardly worth firing right now.
