If there was a woodshed, it's safe to say that Lou Merloni would take Bobby Valentine out to it.

This, after Valentine's latest strange move -- pinch-hitting Daniel Nava for Jose Iglesias with a 2-2 count.

"I think it's an absolute joke. What you did was embarrass the player," Merloni said to CSNNE's Jessica Moran.

"It's absolutely ridiculous, I've never seen it before," he continued. "It's embarrassing to the kid and I guarantee if you asked the players off the record, they'd say the same damn thing."

Merloni says they should have fired Valentine "two or three weeks ago".
