Can anybody tell me why, if you dont want to burn a pinch hitter there, but you're going to change pitchers, you dont send up Leake or even Arroyo/Bailey/Latos to try andbunt him over??? Was Dusty asked about this???
My Dish feed ended right after the last out so I did not see any postgame --- was he even asked about his logic there?
