It's one thousand feet above sea level.  The farts from the first 3 rows have by far a greater effect on ball trajectory. 
Yes. I mean, it is a thing there

However it works out, I like the quick hook. Letting Ross leave with a bunch of confidence with a solid outing is a good thing.

I don't know about bringing in Elias for lefties though.  The strong reverse splits have been true for the last 3 years or so, last I looked.

I absolutely HATE the 5 walks but I have to give it up for Ross for that outing. We needed it badly. :clap:

While creating the YNOT Guessing game for this road trip, I was surprised that they scheduled Ross for 2 starts. I'll be satisfied if this turns into a win.

Letting a bullpen pitcher hit in a 2-0 game. Bold strategy, Davey.

Howie going out set that up.  Letting him hit wasn't the problem.  But FP was right, he just needed to stand there.

you're up 2-0 and playing with a short bench. There was no need to leadoff and burn a PH that you may need later. You wanted the pitcher to come out to face the lefty leadoff batter for Arizona. You expected him to K. No one could predict he would pull a hamstring trying to beat out and groundball

If they’re convinced he can get 3 more outs stand there and strike out he should never swing the bat that is elementary baseball. I’m dumbfounded

Which is why you tell him not to swing the dang bat.
