I was referring to the situations lately where the Reds led by one run (or two) heading to the 7th or 8th inning and Dusty either sent the starter back out or brought in a struggling reliever (neither of which I've complained about), but didn't have anyone warming in the bullpen in case the pitcher ran into trouble (that's the head-scratcher). You knew what I was referring to. When you have a guy who's struggling as badly as Lecure is lately, why not get Hoover ready just in case?
What's "mind blowing" is posters who will alter the meaning of someone else's post, for no other reason than to argue or criticize another poster. There's way too much of that on this site. You guys keep making excuses for all these games we let get away, while telling everyone else to see the "big picture". Well guess what, every game is included in the "big picture". I hope these games don't come back to haunt us, but at this point we don't know, do we?
