    Hate to be debbie downer here, sportsfans, but this just cements "sacrifice bunt = big inning" in a certain man'ger's mind.

    All this patience with men on base is suspect. Why don't they swing at that first strike more often?

    Psst, Gardy. Didja enjoy that 8th inning? See what you can do with a four man bench?

    You're probably right, but as long as he continues to employ his 'draw five to ten walks per inning' strategy, the tradeoff looks pretty good.

    I don't want to brag...but that's 3 series in a row I've called. That's right...I am the prognosticator.

    I will be sharing my prediction on the next series when that game thread appears. That is all.

    Years from now, we'll be able to tell people we were on the interweb the cold night in '14 when the pitchers from Canada couldn't get it across the plate because they had to wear mittens.

    If you wanted to challenge your abilities, you would have prognosticated how this past game would play out.

    When we think back to who actually broke this open...
    It all comes back to Zukesie. Who else is clutch enough to come through as a PH, with a staredown so fierce that the pitcher decided to bury two pitches halfway between the mound and the plate rather than throwing in the strike zone, scoring two runs in one PA?

    In terms of coaxing wild pitches, he was most effective, no doubt.
    Mad props.

    I think Gardy played the 8th fine. Yeah maybe Nunez should have swung away there, or maybe Gardy should have PH for Nunez instead of waiting for Escobar. But, down 2 with runners on 1st and 2, 0 outs, I can live with a sac bunt attempt out of a hitter of Nunez's caliber. Then plug in Plouffe with an eye to drive em in. Worst case scenario they give him the open base and then you have arguably your best hitter up (Dozier).

    Works for me.

    I only do series. Predicting single games is madness I say, madness.
