    Of course Bell takes away our ability to both praise Tyler Stephenson and use the name Bock.

    Bell should be fired for not starting Stephenson in this game.

    Shows absolute incompetence.

    Indefensible.

    Curt Casali is OPSing 850ish.

    I am absolutely fine with him starting.

    While I'd generally agree, how much experience does he have calling a game with Disco on the mound?

    I bet Casali has a lot more.

    I’m sure Casali was told much earlier that he was catching Game 2.

    You don’t just change that because Stephenson hit a home run.

    Stephenson can start tomorrow.

    I’m sure he has enough.

    Kid just had the biggest hit of the year 20 minutes ago and is clearly a star in the making. Better sit him. I mean, I can’t with this. It’s insanity.

    Yeah, we can’t tell Curt Casali to take a seat. That would be crazy.

    So you’d tell Casali, who expects to be starting, who’s got around an .850 OPS, sorry Curt, you’re going to sit, we have to go with the kid.

    I wouldn’t view that as proper managing. You have to keep your team together and keep your promises.

    Every manager pre makes both lineups for a double header in advance of both games. Advance Oreo Westin is definitely not indefensible or a sign of gross negligence. However, I might argue impulse posting lacking in substance might be.

    In all seriousness, Im game for getting Steve some starts. Some pitchers might have a preference at this point and Id be looking to set up starts from guys like Antone, Mahle, whom might not have a huge preference at this point, and I expect you will see it happen.

    Not sure if thats the case with Disco, as to begin the day I would have likely preferred Stephenson (who has less platoon splits than Casali) agajnst the righty.

    I literally could not care less about Curt Casali’s feelings.
