Do you guys want him to be happy that he is being benched? I certainly don't. I really don't see the big deal in this.
I want him to work on getting better not pouting over it. It's one thing to be mad, its another to spin it as motivation not to have it happen frequently. So he got 2 hits the day before, whoppity dodaa! He's still 5 for 21 in July with 3 K's, just 1 extra base hit, and no walks. When he starts hitting for some consistency and power then he can talk. Use that anger to prove to Lou you don't deserve to be benched more instead of pouting about it and saying things like if you knew you weren't going to play you wouldn't show up ready to play. Even on the bench you have to be ready to play every day because a guy can get hurt or you may need to pinch hit or be a part of a double switch on a given moment.
