Fair enough. Maybe Girardi knows how long Layne needs or is comfortable with. Seemed to work out OK.I was watching the Yankee game and that's what Girardi had Layne do and that's what P91 and I are talking about. Layne literally had a mound meeting + toss over to 1B to warm up so about 2 minutes if that.
EDIT: YES had the split screen going and you saw when Rothschild phoned to the bullpen to let them know "we're stalling, Layne is coming in ASAP."
My point stands that stalling buys some time, which is time in addition to how much you already gave yourself from when you got the guy up. That total time may mean a guy is rushed or if you planned it better it may mean that its enough for a guy to get ready in his usual sequence.
