Stop this blasphemy. Dusty Baker is the only manager in the majors allowed to make questionable decisions!
I'm absolutely furious right now with Matheny. I have not been quick to judge him on moves made because he is a rookie manager and like all rookies, he's going to have a learning curve (Mattingly wasting a pitcher due to coming out on a mound last year is a perfect example). This was just a horrible decision on his part and could have proven to be the key at bat of the game. Carpenter is OPSing .792 against left handed pitchers and Butters is OPSing .771 against left handed batters. To me, its clear who they should have used in that at bat, match ups be damned. I do not understand Matheny's love/fascination with Butters (Tyler Greene).
