I Am Beginning to See why Kendall dislikes Macha

First a limitation on the iron man's playing time and now this...Macha's like an overbearing spouse, cramping Kendall's style. Not to say if I agree or disagree with Macha (I certainly agree with limiting the playing time, but Kendall did extremely well cutting down would-be thieves last year), but I think it's becoming clear that Kendall may not be excited about the return of his ex.


Macha plans to control opponents' running game from the bench this season. Last year, then-bench coach Ted Simmons allowed catchers Jason Kendall and Mike Rivera to do it themselves, meaning the players didn't have to look into the dugout for signs calling for pickoffs and the like. He thinks coaches have a better perspective of what opponents are trying to do from the bench.
