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.
So you think saving Javy to pinch hit in the 9th with no one on is better than using him in the 7th with 1 out and runners on 1st and 3rd is a good thing?
