He needs his bullpen tomorrow

Damn. They've got a plan and that's their plan.

I guess we'll never know what would've happened if he got Barnes out.

Helpful managerial tip: if the other team is very happy about the thing you just did, it's likely the wrong thing. Not all the time but pretty often.

On what planet is the Nick Anderson that’s been AWFUL during the playoffs a better option than the guy they can’t touch?

here's my issue with it. you need to win both these games. every extra out Snell can handle, you save the pen for the next night.

now your pen needs to cover 11 outs, which they could do, but they probably won't be in great shape. meanwhile there you go it's 1-1 already basically.

I guess for TB, "3rd time thru the order in a 1 run game" is like letting a starter throw 175 pitches. Just ain't happening.
