How long after a guy is berating himself on the mound do you leave him in? Good news, if it’s a dozen more baserunners you too have a chance to be a major league manager.
This was an absolute nobrainer. I was stunned when Barraclough was left in for Altuve. There's no way I want that matchup with a 4-3 lead. I knew this was coming the moment that Barraclough was left in. If I had been faster to get on SOSH I would have said something at the time. But four more runs came in before I got back to the keyboard. What the hell is Cora doing.Yep. Couldn't take him out after the first walk. Could have after the second, but it's arguable that facing Maldonado was okay. But he should have been gone at that point
