Cardinals brought in their closer in a tie game. What is Dusty saving Marshall for? What is he saving Chapman for? I do not understand how you bring in your long guy and let him pitch to 1 batter and then bring in Bray. A rookie manager just showed up a very veteran one. Offense is the problem but Dusty has done a horrible job this year with the bullpen.

I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.
