So basically, the argument FP is making is that Henley should send Adams because of the low odds of Stras getting a hit. That argument only makes sense if there is a reasonable chance of scoring. You would have to be blind to think that Adams was going to score there unless the Dodgers defense failed to make routine throws. We actually know the odds of Stras getting a hit based upon his stats. It may not be high, but it seems higher than the chances of Adams scoring. That is one reason that send is stupid. The other reason is that if you can pretty much bet that you are giving up the third out at home, you may as well let the pitcher bat to turn the lineup over. If he wants to talk about low odds of the pitcher getting a hit, he should factor in the low odds of scoring when he leads off the next inning.

Sanity. FP is covering for his buddy Sendley.

My point is that the rule is complicated and really I wasn't so much talking about this one play.

Ron Darling took up for Hendley also. Are they friends? Different points of view obviously.

Doesn’t look like they will have any more scoring chances today so hoping for a bad throw there was the best odds.

TBS announcers said it was a good send. Ron Darling. Because two outs.

Need to turn over the lineup.

I would be curious what Darling had to say.

I know Adams is slow and I know he had just been hit on the foot but he surprised me with how slow he is. He was Jason Bergmann slow :lol:

Two outs and pitcher up so you take a chance.

This is MLB. With a slow runner those guys take their time and nail him just about every time. I don't know what the percentage is but you take your chances. Judgement calls, I guess.

Didn’t see it but assume he got a bad jump also.

Anyways I’m just playing the role of Slate cause I don’t see him here.

Apparently the key to Robles hitting is to hit him in the two hole

He did. I think he assumed it was going to get caught.

Today is the definition of a pitching duel. Gotta love it. It reminds me of playoff baseball.

C&D said the same thing. So the radio and tv announcers have this figured out but not the nitwits of wnff. :crackup:

Martinez must be managing from the clubhouse on his phone. It's the only explanation for why this game didn't became a blowout in our favor once he got booted
