    Torre- A Smart Manager

    Last night against the cardinals tie game, runner on third 2 outs. They walk Pujols AND Holliday to load the bases and strike out Ankiel

    I saw that, too. Swallow your pride, give yourself a better chance to win. There's nothing "macho" about pitching to Albert Pujols.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    Seems like a pretty simple idea. I guess smart just means obvious now.

    If the Reds did that, Ankiel would hit a GSHR.

    Why wouldnt a manager walk 2 most dangerous hitters in the line up to set up a force play at every base? Seems pretty simple concept to me.

    Pretty sure Dusty has done it more than once. I remember him doing it with Weathers on the mound before.

    He's the Redzone Hal McCoy. At least according to his own definition of Hal McCoy.

    Actually he's a very poor mans "Falls City Beer", with no offense to FCB.
