Dusty - Game 1 Pitching Decision
So many people bang on Dusty on a daily basis here (I do it too), but there needs to be a thread for what I think may have been one of his most difficult decisions in years during a game.
Game 1 of an NLDS, a series we think the Reds can win, and your ace goes down two batters in.
Instead of just throwing Latos out there to warm up on the mound like a reliever, they put LeCure out there while Latos goes through as normal a warm up as possible. Of course it worked out as well as it could despite the trouble LeCure ran into.
I applaud Dusty "big time" for this one. He and Pryce made a decision that was just as important as the play on the field.
