The game actually did matter IMO, I think we were 3 back of the Dodgers at this point with this weekend's series looming.  That's part of why keeping him in was so bad

Catching the Dodgers is a secondary or tertiary goal right now.

We have been using a 6 man rotation...

Not until tomorrow we haven't...

No, it didn't. We have a playoff spot. Getting ready is all that matters.

If it really mattered he would have reset the rotation. Instead he pushed Gio back.

Still a couple weeks left in the season. Plenty of time to shift things into place and set the rotation up. Remember there is a couple days between the end of the season and the start of the playoffs anyway. We'll be fine in that regard.

personally, I'm glad we are going with the 6 man rotation because I get to see AJ instead of Stras today! :lol:

By the way, have you noticed that our only wins this week have been when Dusty goes with the call ups?

Should be fired after the game, regardless of outcome. No excuse for Max going out for the 7th, norm for Werth to still be in LF

Anyone who still supports Dusty Baker after that game: stop watching baseball because you suck at it.

There is no legit debate about bringing this imbecile back as manager.

As much as Rusty is getting rightly chewed out for the bad pitching decisions today, along with the refusal to sub Lind for Werth, I'm furious with him for something else:

Why the freak is Turner still leading off in the playoffs?!?!?!?!?  Put Rendon there and move around the lineup for freak sakes.  You don't put a complete POS hitter in your leadoff spot!  Baseball 101.

Hit .297/.371/.525 since returning from his injury.

Has looked lost first three games but I'm not sure who else makes sense there. I know Werth got a hit today, but I would not be opposed to Difo or Kendrick starting tomorrow in his spot and leading off.

He freaked up going with Solis instead of just rolling with the Bullpen's Big 3 but its also not his fault when the same band of choking losers simply can not hit a baseball in October.

It's his fault for playing the same band of choking losers though.

I would have preferred Kintzler starting the inning.

But then had Kintzler struggled we'd be pissed Scherzer was pulled.

At that point your lefty just has to get it done.

He freaked up letting Max go out for the 6th inning. And then again in the 7th. Mike Rizzo could not have drawn it up any better. One run lead with Kintzler, Madson, and Doolittle rested and ready.

I’m asking this in all seriousness. Is it typical to bench a guy who has produced all season after two o-fer games? Even with a bunch of K’s. We will see what the lineup looks like tomorrow. People were calling for turner to be benched after one game. Wasn’t he hitting like .300 since he came back?

No one would have been passed. Eveyone saw Max struggling after the 3rd inning. Everyone knew he had a bad hammy.
