Oh yea you can really question the moves once we got into the bullpen, just sayin that I thought it was a good time to get Latos out.
The way our bullpen is setup now I guess Ondrusek could have been the guy to start the 8th...and I don't really feel much better about that. I think Simon has earned his shot at bigger moments in the game so he'd be my favorite choice at the moment. Arredondo is another option but he's actually better at getting lefties out because of his splitter (which makes me wonder even more why Bray is on the team right now). And then obviously going to Lecure with the bases loaded, but I really don't think it mattered at that point, Ondrusek had already lost the game.
If Hanigan or Heisey were able to hit a flyball earlier in the game we would have handed over a lead to Chapman in the 9th. It was just a really poorly played game by everyone not named Mat Latos.
