Brian Fuentes Has Even More Harsh Words For Bob Geren

A’s reliever Brian Fuentes, upset with the way manager Bob Geren has handled him and the rest of the bullpen this year, had even more to say after he spoke to MLB.com’s Jane Lee. Via tweets from the San Francisco Chronicle’s national baseball writer John Shea, Fuentes didn’t hold back. In chronological order, here are Fuentes’ quotes via Shea’s tweets:

Brian Fuentes rips into Bob Geren: “Unorthodox managing. I thought it was a NL thing. But tonight was pretty unbelievable.”

Fuentes on how much Geren communicates with him: “zero.”

When Fuentes got call in 8th inning in 1-1 game today: “I thought he misspoke. I thought it was a mistake.”

Ranking Geren with his other managers, Fuentes said, “It’s a pretty drastic difference.”

Fuentes said it’s not just him when it comes to Geren: “I don’t think anybody knows what direction he’s headed.”

Time for a clear-the-air session with Geren? Fuentes: “At this point, I have nothing to say.”

It would seem that either Fuentes — or Geren — or maybe both — could be changing jobs or losing jobs pretty soon.
