    Brings back thoughts of Ricky Henderson and how good he was at getting that early run.

    Good job Arcia
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    I felt the breeze from Arcia's second strike all the way down here. But the double after that was sweet. Too bad the baserunner wasn't among our faster guys.

    So you pinch run Parmalee here, but if you'd done it at 1st he'd have scored there. F'in brilliant Gardy. Really.

    When they got Morales they knew he was s-l-o-w, but do they have a plan for how to deal with him? It seems not.

    That inning is on Gardy. Just inexplicable.

    That's why you send Morales and make the other team throw him out. They probably do, but standing on third and watching Colabello and Fuld predictably fail to get the ball out of the infield is worse. Be the aggressor.
    Every post is not every other post. - a wise man

    In that situation you have to PR for him. Parmalee isn't really a downgrade anyway. But if you are leaving him in under the premise that it's only the 7th inning, than you don't change your mind 2 minutes later. Ugh.

    Not really. With Morales at 1st, you know nothing short of a HR will score him and you're not getting 3 hits in an inning off this pitcher.

    Arcia is on the cusp of being a star. You can see him learning and improving.

    Great managing there by Gardy. If you are going to pinch run Parmelee, do it right away. After Morales was held at third he just looked like an idiot making the change then. Nobody probably even thinks about it if he leaves Morales in.

    If Correia would suddenly give up 3 runs this inning, would he still be credited with a quality start?
