Joe is looked at as a very by the binder kind of guy. It's his thing. He frequently consults it to help figure out what the right move is, statistically. He comes under fire by fans for it often. I'm probably in the minority here, but like it. He is a logical thinker, and I appreciate it. This season, his binder has gotten quite a work-out. With most of our starting line-up taking up residence on the DL, and "The Replacements" out on the field, it's a wonder Joe has gotten the team to do this well so far.
That's what Joe does. If nothing else, he has always said that he has faith in his team. He believes that they will do their absolute best. He makes the best plays possible, and hope that the guys perform. This isn't the first season that Joe and his binder have performed close to magic for us. The past few seasons, we were counted out early. And, with the exception of 2008, we have made it to the playoffs every year. Joe is clearly doing something right.
