And if so I can accept that fact
As bad as Coffey / Cormier were.....would it not have made more sense to have brought Cormier into face Berkman and turn him around, where he is less effective right handed.
As much of a Reds killer as he is, I think I wouldve played those odds and had him face a left hander with no chance of being pinch hit for, than bring Cormier in after the fact where he had a much less chance of success due to Garner have no problem pinch hitting for lesser players, using a totally right handed hitting bench against a left hander.
And then of course leaving him out there to face Lane....that was just flat out stupid.
Granted, the game might have played out exactly the same, but I think thats how I wouldve played it.....of course Im no Jerry Narron
