Re: September Scoreboard Watching
As I said in the game thread - in advance of the spot - you cannot leave Homer Bailey in to face Pujols or Holliday in a tight sixth inning spot.
He often falters in the middle innings at this stage of his career.
Had Dusty brought Masset in to face Pujols or Holliday there, the Reds likely win the game.
You have to know your pitchers. Let Homer develop some other time.
Jay, Pujols, Holliday were facing Homer for the third time in the game. Pitch count was irrelevant. The Cards have very few dangerous hitters, you treat them like dangerous hitters and go with your lights out reliever there. Yes, in the sixth inning.
