The problem, as you know, is that they were already in a hole b/c of Dunn moving on. So, yeah, it's a dumb move, because it just makes the shoveling that must be done to dig out of this particular hole that much more difficult. I am aghast that Jocketty doesn't grasp that.
Again, no Pujols here (that we know of) to cover this kind of bad decision. No Duncan as pitching coach either...
