Two Moves that Make Zero Sense

You always see commercials, billboards, and even headlines that make you scratch your head and say out loud “what were they thinking?” Well, there were two moves that make me not only scratch my head and ask the question but they made me think that a child was capable of running the Colorado Rockies and the Chicago White Sox.

The Colorado Rockies actually signed Livan Hernandez to pitch for them. What did he do for them you ask? He pitched 2.2 innings allowing 9 runs (all earned) on 7 hits, 4 walks, and only had 1 strikeout. Did the Rockies actually think he was an upgrade over, well, anybody? What makes it worse is that he gave those runs up against one of the worst offensive teams in the league (albeit in Colorado). Livan actually apologized for his outing: “I try my best,” Hernandez said. “It’s not happen the way I want. It’s difficult. I got to move forward and help the team win. I know I no do good today. I’m sorry. I try my best.”

The Chicago White Sox lost starter Jose Contreras so they needed a replacement. Who did they get you ask? Horacio Ramirez. The man who routinely walks more men than he strikesout. The White Sox may call up a starter and use Ramirez in the pen but what were the White Sox thinking? Granted, he has pitched well out of the pen but he is moving to a great hitter’s park with a bad defense behind him and he still doesn’t miss any bats. Not a good combo for a guy who has a bad track record.
