    Am I the only one hoping that BP goes for a suicide squeeze here?
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Bronson was pitching an absolute gem. I agree with the people who say walk Utley and pitch to the kid, but pulling Bronson...I disagree.

    It's first guessing, as soon as he allowed a base runner, I typed highway to the danger zone. When Utley came up, I asked where is Chapman, it's flat out stupid. There is no way to defend what he did tonight, none.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    It looked like Nix had a shot to catch it. Don't want to get doubled up.

    Bloop in front of the RF. He dove and Robinson had to hold up to see if he would catch it. And his shoe came part way off as he went to third.

    I'm guilty of doing what I detest- second guessing. I should have posted when Utley came up. I could live with walking Utley although your putting the tying run on.
    just don't let Bronson pitch to the left handed batter there.

    Most right fielders catch that one.

    Should be 3-0.

    Frankly, I'm shocked. Here's a time when playing for 1 run and avoiding the double play is the perfect play and Dusty doesn't do it.

    That'll work too though! YES! 2 run single!
