You either make Romo bat, or the Giants use their LAST pinch hitter, AND Romo has to come out of the game. I was screaming at the television. Has anyone asked Baker about this yet??
Agree completely, I think it was a mistake on Dusty's part. Not only that, but it would have set up an out at every base, meaning after the bobble, Rolen could have come home (may have been easier as he was charging the ball)
