Watching the game last night, especially after the Hatteburg HR, I had to stop and relate his situation with the way Narron had handled the bullpen the two nights before. The Phils pticher in the 8th (forgot his name) seemed to be dealing fairly well. Why not leave him in? And yet, they put in Gordon, left him in and he lost the game.
I understand that you want to get the best matchups lefty/righty wise, and have continuity in the cloaser position, but last night Gordon was left to the wolves. His bullpen had been exhausted, and he clearly didn't have his stuff. Yet the Phils' bullpen had been so micromanaged that they didn't have a choice but to leave him in.
Does this relate to Narron's management the past week? Honestly, I am not knowledgable enough about these sort of things to know for sure. If you were a Phils fan, how would you react? Any opinions in comparison to Narron?
