I missed most of the game, and was wondering:
A. Why was Arroyo lifted after 6 innings, only 86 pitches, no runs, 4 Ks, and only 1 walk? Was Dusty trying to out-LaRussa LaRussa?
B. Why are two out-machines, Patterson and Yanish, getting the most AB? Nevermind, we know this answer!
C. Why was Patterson allowed to bat in the game-tied, first and second, eighth inning against the southpaw? Wasn't the RH hitting Cabrera available? Why call him up and not use him?
