Bailey had thrown about 100 pitches and Fielder is one of those hitters that you don't let beat you with a right handed pitcher on the mound.
If Fielder had hit a HR off of Bailey, most posters here would have added that to the list of Baker's mistakes yesterday. And complained that Bailey was being pushed way too hard.
Baker removing Bailey whe he did was the exact right thing to do.
