If it had worked you'd all be hailing Baker. But I never said Baker shouldn't be faulted there. Just the majority should be on the hitter not executing.
And what happens if Hanigan swings to protect the runners, hits a soft line drive to the second baseman, and it turns into a triple play?
Too many bad things could happen there. You had all the momentum and a struggling pitcher. It was a dumb play.
