If the pen blows this Davey needs to be run out of town on a rail.

When we lose 6-5, you'll realize why.
If that happens Davey won’t have a job tomorrow

I don’t think they should.

State law says the race has to be held in Baltimore. So the legislature would have to vote to move it. And I think they are done for the year.

I don't think it's wrong to trust Doolittle to be able to save a 3 run lead.  But like FP says, sometimes teams get picked up by seeing anyone else than the starter dominating them.   Strasburg's pitch count is low, why not let him save Doolittle for another day?

No reason to assume Doolittle will blow the lead.

Strasburg was dealing, there was no reason to take him out.

Did Davey take Stras out or did Stras take himself out?

You saw that too?  I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me.

Doolittle will lose concentration.  This is a loss.  Book it Danos.
