    It's less being critical of Garrett and more the way he expresses his frustration. "HOW can you walk that guy?" is a stupid statement. You walk him by throwing 4 pitches out of the strikezone before you get three strikes or a ball in play, and that's not something Garrett was INTENDING to do.

    Also, why do we need our PBP guy to weigh in on this at all? His job is to call the game, not give us his brilliant color commentary.

    Nearly a web gem from Iglesias but can't make the throw

    Infield hit with 2 outs

    Back to back hits

    Neil Walker comes up representing the tying run

    Sounds like a good recipe for getting traded to a last place team for essentially a low level prospect.

    How many of the HRs came on sliders?

    It's irrational to use a reliever for an inning?

    1, the other 2 were on fastballs.

    Any selection of 19 PAs is going to be cherry picking stats. 19 PAs is not nearly enough to make any kind of conclusion off of, especially when there's a larger, though still small, sample from AAA that shows he's actually good against LHPs. I'm not saying he should be playing every day against lefties, but the 19 PAs so far should not be a determining factor

    Chris even told Thom that Amir wasn't intending to walk him.
