Question: does Bourn steal on his own, or does Fredi decide when to send him? Perhaps this is just a good dose of Fredi-hating, but I’m seriously wondering if Fredi’s not at least partly to blame for Prado’s two GIDPs when Bourn is on first.
And how many times have we seen Fredi hit-and-run when slower runners are on base? And it seemingly never happens when Bourn’s on? Is that just me?
I wish I felt like me right now. Why the hell do you pitch Martinez there? And leave him in to give up 2 runs? Insane. Martinez is the long inning guy, or the blowout game guy. Not the “hold them right there” guy.
And the Constanza experiment really needs to end. If he is going to flip flop guys, at least let it be Diaz and not Constanza.
And Raul Ibanez? Again? Is it a good sign when there 5 beats our 1? And there 5 has been getting slapped around recently?
