Re: Bottom of the 9th, man on 1st, Pujols up, Rolen on deck, what's the move, meat?
You can second guess the move now. But, its against every concept in baseball to intentionally put the tieing run in scoring position and the winning run on base(although there are cases for putting a guy on 1st if its open). But the other times he hit a HR is what bugs me about not walking him. He'll end up hitting .350 this season because he'll face the Reds 16 more times and so far I've not been impressed with some of the philosophies used this year.
I'm East of you. Be very very worried. Not quite OBX. But, be worried.
