Please. Berry made a bad decision, yes.
But this is on the closer. Period.
True, but it was a poor decision to bring Chapman in. Berry's decision is obvious. Bunting with Harris instead of letting Mes hit. Continuing to play Heisey and let him bat first is insane. Those are managerial decisions that cost the Reds the game. Players are what they are. It is up to management to make decisions that give the team a chance to win.
