Baker went to mound in 8th inning. Not Price. He talked to his catcher and his NUMBER 1 starter and got their input and then left Cueto in. That is exactly what I want my manager doing - trusting his players. That is a good manager of people.
You people who complain are just complaining based on results. Its called Monday Morning Quarterbacking. In other words, just noise, IMO.
Spot on. Leaving Cueto in for the 8th...I had no problem with that. I personally would've kept him on a short leash, but I have no doubt that Dusty was watching him closely. Just an unfortunate dinger off of Logan. And the people complaining about Ondrusek...really? He may be overused some, but not even close to how he was last year. And regardless of HOW he's doing it, he's been VERY good throughout his career.
