How does Pete's logic not get the runs that are on the base paths? Your logic is contradictory. Pete's decisions do not strike out three times or leave four runners on base.
Perhaps the fact that you do not understand his logic is why you and others second guess every decision a manager makes.
A manager must
play for the next hitter, next inning, several innings ahead. You seem to want a manager to play for the moment rather than the combination of the large numbers of variables thar are invoolved in decision making.
