How long should be give Lou as the manager?

 Alright, while I personally think Lou will continue to have a significant career in the Majors, I am concerned about him being the type of manager that gives his favorite players too much leeway. I've stated here before how Lou can make really strange decisions, but I don't think Lou will ever see Theriot as the disaster at SS as some of us do. This may have more to do with Lou's expectations of him at the plate and his above average offense, but his bat will never make up for the terrible mistakes in the field and on the basepaths. (I wouldn't dare say this to Lou's face - so, to whoever is reading this, please don't listen to me because I don't have a "trained eye", do you think Lou has a trained eye?).

 Anyway, having said that, I think that maybe if he is still allowing Theriot to remian at SS after this next start, he needs to have his blood pressue medication changed at the very least and maybe even given shock therapy and have his contract bought out.. I would put Trammell in as manager, who I have much more confidence in knowing what it takes to be a ML SS and I imagine Alan could shake things up and would be a good motivator as well.

 Not at all saying this after four games and is in no way a knee jerk reaction, but even the staunchest Lou fan must admit his propensity to allow relievers to fail over and over and still stick with them while ignoring the same thing on defense with postion player is maddening. Other managers make the adjustments needed on defense and so far what Ive seen from him in the ST and the regular season and today, I don't see any signs of him making an adjustment as his double swithes look just as ridiculous as last year.

 Who would you put in the manager's spot if Lou continues his struggles in the dougout?
