Absolutely stupidity on display with that one.
IT WAS TO STAY OUT OF A GB DP. Odds of him grounding out are probably higher than striking out.
You don't even understand why the decision was made. It did not work out, but it's at least defensible. (I personally would not have made the call).
Hard for you to criticize.
