    I think he was simply being rested. You may as well rest him vs. a Santana type guy, assuming you are going to rest him.

    Which makes it worse. Essentially you are saying that Cozart hitting with a man on second with two outs is better than any pinch hitter with one out followed by Cozart. I'm sorry, I can't get behind that logic.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    I agree that there should not have been a bunt.

    But why do you think the number of pitches is relevant?

    Wright hits it up the middle, right where BP is playing. 3-2 Mets after 7.

    Because its obvious he's done. You must pinch hit and swing the bat.

    I really think dusty lets the pitcher hit in the half inning before he knows the pitcher is done is because he has no other better options on the bench. That is amazing considering the bench players are primarily getting paid to hit and field.

    I believe so, he got a shaky save the other day after Collins gave him the vote of confidence. It's possible he'll mix and match though.


    Stubbs singles to start the 8th.

    Sometimes I get the feeling from you guys that there is NEVER an appropriate time to bunt. Is there? (I didn't have a big problem with that call btw)
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Votto singles and stretches it into a (close) double! 2nd and 3rd, no outs.
