I guess it all comes down to the fact that I think watching the pitcher hit is a real drag.
Even when the opposing pitcher is coming up, and it helps the Reds dance around an offensive threat, there's just a lot less excitement.
Runners in scoring position, 1b open, 2 outs, #8 hitter up, the threat is pretty much over. We still have to sit through 2 at bats which have a low chance of actually making anything happen.. It's all my opinion, but that's not exciting baseball to me.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
