I guess I can't fault Frank for tonight's game too much. Ultimately, we had the lead and he gave 3 pitchers a chance to save it & none of them performed (or even came close). This one is squarely on Rauch/Rodriguez/Eischen.
Not quite. FR should NEVER have taken out Rauch. Moreover, if he was going to do so, either Bergmann or Stanton would have been a better choice. Anyone but Rodriguez and Eischen, who are by any measure the two worst reliever in our pen. Using them is DOWNRIGHT PERVERSE.
I said "too much." By the way, did you see Stanton on Sunday & last night? I suspect the game would have turned out the exact same way.
However, I do agree that he should have just stuck with Rauch.
