Re: 8/2/06: Dodgers @ Rojos Game Thread (Edwin and Royce in, Rich out)
I was at the Twins game today and Boof Bonzer was getting demolished by the Rangers. I had great seats so it was very easy to tell that these guys were stting back and teeing off. He wasn't fooling anyone. The pitching coach came out a few times, but he stayed in the game. It was a head scratcher, but he stayed in clear until he got out of the 4th (where he gave up 5 runs). It was a good example of a manager waiting until the game was out of reach until he finally pulled his pitcher when it wasn't late in the game. I'm not suggesting Narron did this tonight, but it helped confirm the notion that Jerry's not really any different than most ML managers. They all pretty much do the same things most of the time.
