All respect--this just doesnt make sense. If you'd pitch him in game 2, you'd inherently pitch him for third time in 3 days. So if you are willing to do that, your choice is pitching him in a situation YOU KNOW is important (tied in the 10th) against their 2 best lefty's, or waiting to see if you have an important situation.
To me, he's either available today and goes out vs. Utley and Howard or he doesnt go at all today...
Well, that was a bunch of hemming and hawing about nothing
Apparently it was going to be LeCure to pitch the 10th.
Lecure was up throwing. Gotta save your closer, dude. Now everyone's available to help Leake get the sweep.
All games count the same--had we not scored, you have a chance to use him in a tie game at home. People who wouldnt have would rather save him IN CASE he's needed for the next game????
