    Jay just missed it. How do you put a reliable hitter on the bench with this team?

    It's both. I think dusty was valuing moving the base runner up without burning a pinch hitter. He did the same thing on sat when I was there and latos couldn't do the job.

    It's been said several times. 20 straight days with a game. Gotta rest guys sometime or the whole team will be dragging at the end of it.

    All teams with a 12 man pitching staff are in serious trouble with their bench.

    Worth noting though that Leake didn't go up immediately looking to bunt, he laid it down with 2 strikes in fact.

    Giving the guy a day off against a tough lefty and saving him for the right moment. That was a CitiField sac fly ... It's a 3 run homer at GABP.

    Whoever said their bullpen was junk gets a gold star.
