    IF he ends up pulling Milton in this inning, im going to be very upset... Not that im not upset already with not trusting the bullpen to get 4 innings in. I ge that Milton has been decent the past 3 innings, but bases loaded... thats too good of an oppurtunity to pass up.

    Narron again proves why he is the worst manager in the game. And Milton promptly gives up a hard single. Unbelievable.

    Cmon guys Narron wanted to leave Milton in to face Bonds in that lefty lefty matchup.

    NVM the 5 LH in the bullpen.

    And I'm a Narron guy. But that was the worst decision I've ever heard. Milton always breaks down around the 6th inning, you are going to get ONE more inning out of him at the most, bases loaded, down a run, you HAVE to pitch hit right there. Unbelievable.

    I would feel completely different if it were Harang or Arroyo on the hill. Or even Lohse. But not Milton. If you have a chance to pull him after five, you do it.

    And it looks like Milty is going to get out of the 6th, but it's still a bad move. Of course, Narron probably thought there was no one worth going to on the bench. Valentin was probably the best option.

    Vinnie Chulk should be a closer at some point, just so the Giants announcer can mutter the obvious "Chalk another save up for Chulk" line.

    Thank you Milton. Despite that you should have been pinch hit for, thank for 6 IP of only 3 ER. No offense, but I really hope we don't see you out again for the 7th!

    He will come back out for the 7th. He should anyway. 74 pitches, bottom of the order coming up. You let him go back with someone loosening up in the pen.

    If Milton is out there for the 7th, I likely won't be a part of this discussion anymore, because I doubt my computer would survive.

    I hope we score 4 or 5 runs so I can forget what an idiot Narron is. I'm sure he'll remind me again though.
