Scioscia's merry go round




I'm living in Asia at the moment and don't have the benefit of watching many games. But when I look at the box scores daily I always get confused about the rationale behind these daily lineup changes. I know Scioscia is trying to 'shake things up' but for example yesterday Izturis get's 3 hits, today he's on the bench. Why? or Trumbo rides a mild 4game hit streak and them gets thrown on the bench for Branyan. why? I don't get it. Like I said i'm not watching these games, so maybe the box scores don't tell the real story. but I can't understand why branyan/mathis are getting so much playing time. They mean nothing to this franchise this year or in the long run. Other managers give their young studs leeway, Scoscia does not. and he gives underperforming wash ups too much leeway. what gives? what am i missing. did scioscia just get too used to shuffling things around when Figgins was here and now he thinks this is the way he must manage always. It's not, keep people in the line up. let them play 150+ games. this year sucks. glad i'm not able to watch the games this year.
