    Why the hell was Bruce running? He was already in scoring position!

    The ump will call that pitch a strike every time, just to prove a point to the battery mate of a pitcher that tried to show him up earlier in the game.

    To stay out of the DP, obviously.

    Dusty started the runners to stay out of a DP. Ran into a DP by doing it.

    Seriously. 2 men on and no one out and you go for a steal at 3rd? Whatever, Dusty.

    The announcers just got done explaining the pitch before why you run there... because of a slow runner that has grounded into double plays several times this year. And usually Hanigan doesn't let a pitch go by like that, so it would be a safer situation to send the runners to avoid a possible double play.

    Dude...seriously? It was literally .25 of an inch off their graphic and you expect an umpire to determine that when he's been giving the outside inconsistently all game?

    Hanigan strikes out a lot this year, I don't care about his 'past' of being hard to K. He's done it more than his fair share this year.

    Really bummed about that inning. Runners at 1st and 2nd and no outs and we get nothing. Hanigan shouldn't have taken the pitch, no question, but what was Dusty doing sending the runners?? That was a huge blunder and could be a costly one.
