I'm w/most everyone else. WHY not have Chapman up and throwing? That way, when/if Ondrusek gives up a hit, you stop the bleeding right then and right there. Put Chapman in. More likely than not, inning saved and we go to the 11th.
I have NEVER said anything negative about Dusty til now. I have listened to viewpoints from both sides (pro/con) and I have watched his "managerial decisions" w/my own 2 eyes all yr. long. And there is just NO other way to put it; DUSTY HAS GOT TO FREAKIN' GO! He SUCKS.
Yes, I know Hanigan should have made the catch. But, the damn game should have NEVER gotten to that point in the 1st place!!!
I have less faith in Ondrusek than anyone else in our pen. Never been a fan and I knew that game was over last night when he came in. That ERA is going to continue to balloon. Most overrated player on the 40 man.
Going to him in the first place was questionable. Leaving him in there when it was painfully obvious he had absolutely nothing was indefensible.
