Runner on 2nd two outs and Aramis Ramirez up to bat. Tied in a 4-4 game after coming back being down 3-1 and you pitch to Aramis Ramirez with Micah Hoffpauer in the on deck circle hitting .233 with 10 hrs. You seriously pitch to Aramis?!?!

As bad as this team has been scoring runs you gotta assume even the fifth inning that the runner is the winning runer. Make Hoffpaur beat you not the Cubs best offensive weapon. He makes this mistake WAY TO OFTEN.

Simply a horrible excuse for a MLB manager.

It's a fan's worst nightmare to see his team handicapped on a daily basis by such poor decision making.

Could not agree more. It made for a disaster of a season from the opening pitch.

Dude at the plate was probably hot meaning dude at the plate was due for a poor ab, or somethin like that

I understand this team isnt very good at this point but when you exaccerbate that with the strategic lapses of the manager it makes it all that worse. Tied game and Derrick Lee almost makes it moot the batter before. There is no reason what-so-ever that Ramirez got a strike to swing at period.

Many believe that a similar situation led to our demise when some guy named Pu-hols stepped up to the plate with the bases loaded and only up 3 and he choose to pitched to Pu-hols when just about any other manager would have made the next guy beat us (Pre-Holliday). I wouldnt be as hard on Duhhhsty if he was at least showing he was learning from his mistakes but for the 2nd straight year he stuck with a really bad OBP fast dude as leadoff, miscasting 3/4 of the lineup, and letting teams best hitters beat us routinely.

I'm sure he was praying that Ramirez would walk and clog the bases.

how can he learn if he learned he would not be dusty, thus a tautology, he is dusty because he cannot learn
