    Why not Rolen, they said before game he was available to PH...then you just replace Rolen with Sutton if it goes to extras.

    Did anyone who watched the game see a different possible outcome than a crappy groundout by Taveras?

    I would pinch hit with Arroyo before sending up Taveras there.

    I agree, anyone left on the bench had a better chance of getting the ball out of the infield, except for Taveras.
    The inning prior, 2 outs, 2 men on and Janish coming up. Why didnt Gonzalez pinch hit then? Or Sutton, who's had alot more ABs then Janish the past few days. That was 2 dumb decsions in the last 2 innings.

    Wow. Just. WOW.

    It's beyond embarrassing.

    Wily Taveras and his sub .300 OBP should be up in that situation, right? I mean, he's (not) done it all year!

    This obviously is a ploy to ensure we get the #1 pick in the draft next year.

    Dusty Baker, sly as a fox!

    PEACE

    -BLEEDS
    I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008

    Never mind the fact that "kid" would have probably salivated to be up there in that spot. Come on Dusty...they're major league players. They all want to be up there in that sport.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    That move should get him fired if nothing else does!

    Nothing will. BCast thinks Dusty is a "winner." Baker is the owner's guy, and that is that.
