Hell of an at-bat. At the very least, that might cost Max an inning.

Depends. How's Dusty about leaving starters in vs. pulling them, historically?

wow, what the gently caress was that

That was Culberson losing his roster spot in the next round, should the Dodgers advance in spite of this.

Dusty watched Maddon melt down in G3 with his bullpen shuffle, and then watched Bochy melt down in G4 with his bullpen shuffle, and thought "I can do that." :smugdog:

Dusty's the O.G. in this department. It's more like "Lemme show you young whippersnappers how it's REALLY done."


Also is the Nationals Park mound always this terrible on ankles, and/or can't they get the grounds crew some patch up dirt for a playoff game?

Friendly reminder that every Jays home game is guaranteed to have a GBA-Free 7th inning.

That alone might be enough to get me on their bandwagon.

Its the exact kind of move that forward thinking baseball people complain about managers not making enough

The funny thing is it's not really a new idea so much as an ancient/forgotten one.

Rollie Fingers-era closers came early/when it was needed all the time.

Eckersley (iirc) was the beginning of "9th inning only" style closers coming in vogue.

Dusty says to Dave "I got a guy who can't bunt to save his life too! Wanna see?"

:smith: Dusty looked really sad in that presser. Sorta felt bad for him.

His manager career was born under a pretty cruel star, tbh: every team he's managed, he's turned them around from loser to winner (except the Nats, who were already pretty good), and gotten them farther than they've been for years prior, and yet only to fall short in a manner similar to this.

Either he pulls his starter too early in a decisive game or he leaves them in too long. The double switch leads to a kid brought in for defense being the last batter with your season on the line against a presumptive Hall Of Fame pitcher working as the emergency reliever. Somehow whatever he does ends up being the wrong move.

Real Talk: if the Nats had advanced there's a real chance I'd have temp-bandwagoned the Nats in the hope that Dusty could finally get one.
