One of the more difficult thing for fans to understand and is always the quick fan solution is the following: JUST DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
I'm not targeting any specific fans (I've said that frequently before), but sometimes changing just for change sake isn't the right thing to do. Sveum has nothing to work with and has to decide which turd he should play- turd 1 or turd 2. Now maybe we'd have a win or two more if he'd do something different, but he is sticking to the what the stats tell him is the right move. It just isn't working for him, but it is what he should be doing if we are going to be a team that is sabermetric/statistically driven. Yes its frustrating when the results don't show but playing the odds is what we'd expect from a manager. Just imagine - if Sveum did not play to the odds and then we lose, then the rabble and complaints would be that Sveum is using stats to guide his lineups.
Basically he's fucked with any decision he makes with this turd bowl team.
I guess I haven't looked at it that way, and yes, you are correct.
