unbelievable play from Zimmerman on another freaking terrible 0-2 pitch from Gorz. Davey better not let his sorry ass pitch the bottom of the 10th.

Time for the bats to wake up. They are just realizing they don't get to go home until they score.

The problem is that if you don't focus enough on the game to game, then your big picture ends after game 162.

The team is in first place despite the focus on the long term.  Long term focus means the team will be relatively stronger late, as opposed to the Frank Robinson balls to the walls play max effort every game style.

Zimmermann has never pitched more than 161 innings, and if we make it to October we'll need him to be effective.  Using the pen to make starters outings low stress makes sense for the whole season.

Most critics of Davey, and yes I'm including you and SF in that category, tend to focus on the situation at hand as opposed to the full season / 25 man roster big picture.  Davey is clearly focused on the big picture and makes decisions accordingly.

I think you missed my point.  I like Davey as our manager - he is perfect for this team, but I think he has gone to the well a couple too many times recently.  I'm allowed to say that here aren't before being labeled as a hater, right?
