Did we really need to double switch and take Morse out?

freaking Riggleman.

I'm shutting off the game if he starts that moronic bunting.

Of course.  Morse was a threat to hit another dinger.  Gotta stop that crap before it happens.

No.  The pitcher spot, #9, comes up second.

How the f*ck does a third world country like Wisconsin end up with a stadium like that???  It's stunning.

Bud Selig's team.  Do a Search in Off Topic on WNFF, where NatsAddict posted a link a year or two ago to an article on the financing of baseball.  The Brewers and the Marlins are HUGE beneficiaries of revenue sharing from the other MLB teams.  They want to lose money to keep it coming in.

THIS is the reason Riggleman should be fired, idiotic double switches.

Morse is somewhat unsure of himself in right field.  It probably was a defensive move.  Still, to take him out after two homeruns is hard to swallow.

But you could have save the switch for anytime.  How would he know that right field would come into play?

What the freak?! He couldn't sub Bernadina for Morgan? Why take out all the offense you've had this game? Stupid freaking move!
I have no faith whatsoever in Tyler Clippard at this point. I appreciate how he pitched earlier in the season, but at this point, he has not business pitching in any game that we don't have at least a 10 run lead.

Why would one make a defensive move with the score tied?

This game has the feel of a third city on a three city road trip.  :'(

Of course, he did not want to burn Burnett after one batter.

Burnett isn't a left-handed specialist, clearly!
